Send GMail messages using VIM
OK, no flame wars, please, but fact is: I like VIM. So, I wanted one of these days, to send e-mails through it, since I read on Richard Stallman’s website that he uses e-macs to read and send e-mails. Well, can’t vim do that?
In fact it can. But I don’t use normal e-mail providers, so no POP3 or IMAP for me (you can use this plugin if you have a SMTP, IMAP/POP3 account).
For GMail, I came upon this wonderfull piece of code on DJCraven blog. It allows me to send the content of the current buffer as an e-mail to the person you specify on the GMSend vim command. The first line is treated as the Subject. So, you type your message, :GMSend firstname.lastname@example.org and voilá!
That’s what the e-mail was ment to be!
