More imporant (for me) is the possibility to send only file(s) as

echo Enclosed | nail -a some.file address@hidden 

Similar functionality has mutt, switch -a. I can't do it via nmh.
Also composing message with attachment is not very easy. For me
some form of -a switch in comp and repl is missing. Use of mail
client from different subsystem is not convenient, e.g. I can't
use .mh_aliases.

It depends on package. Sometimes it is installed as nail and -a
means attachchment, sometimes is installed as mailx and because
of backward compatibility -a has different meaning. Then
heilroom-mailx looses its most important feature.
