Thanks. How many times over the last 6 years have I tried to switch to 
mutt and given up...

> set edit_headers=yes

yes, I had that.

> set autoedit=yes

ooh, that's closer.  But can I deal with attachments there (ie, in the 
editor) as well, maybe with help from some emacs environment and some 
special headers? Otherwise, the second stage is after I finish editing, 
when I get a chance to attach things.

Also, although I can read messages in different folders, I'm unable to get 
mutt to move a message to another folder in offlineimap's maildir; it 
thinks the (any) folder doesn't exist unless I go and select it through
