It *should* be possible but as far as I am aware of there's currently
no implementation for this. As Orgmode does not depend on any
particular email program this would require a particular function for
every supported mail program. I.e. a function that executes the right
things to let the mail program compose a new mail.

Hum. As I tend to write important mails first below a corresponding
todo headline, than copy'n'paste it such functionality could be

I suppose the first thing to do is brewing a function that scrapes all
relevant information (i.e.: subject, content, attachments) and returns
a property list that can be used by mua specific functions to call the
mua and instruct it to create the mail.

What about:

  - Subject: current entries headline without todo keyword and tags

  - Body: the entries content up to the next headline w/o drawers and

  - Attachments: full path to the entry's attachments
