I currently run an Ubuntu Natty desktop and I have to use Evolution mail to communicate with my offices Exchange server and deal with meeting requests and calendaring. Claws-Mail won't work as it does not support SMTP GSSAPI or NTLM authentication.

How can use vim as my editor when composing an email in Evolution mail? Is it even possible?

I have scoured the web and I have not been able to find any up to date information.

If you were running under Win32, I would recommend external.exe: with that tool, you could use your favourite editor for all text editing tasks.

And hey: as I see, they do also have a port for Linux: http://bur.st/~benc/site/index.cgi?external-edit
