the message.

Now I suppose this would be fine if I actually liked Thunderbird.  I use
it only for work email, and curse it repeatedly, multiple times per day.
In XEmacs I was using an older version of VM (8.0.2.something).  I
installed the current version (8.1.93a) in GNU Emacs.  I dug into the
source, but couldn't figure out how it passed off the message to T-Bird.
How do I get VM to just send the dang message itself?

Try customizing the send-mail-client variable (it defaults to mailclient-send-it
on Mac OS X).
