Thanks, Doug. I haven't touched userdefs.h since I began using the configure
program, a long time ago. Commenting out NO_ANONYMOUS_EMAIL works for mailto
and comments but not for "Mail the file". It would be a good idea to comment
out NO_ANONYMOUS_EMAIL in the default userdefs.h, to extend it to "Mail the
file" and make it also a configure option. Complementing that, making the use
of an external MUA easier would be an excellent idea.
