Thanks !

That was interesting.

I actually had a similar concern but come up with a different solution.
I use desktop in my main projects directory and in my home directory.
When starting emacs in one of those directories, I start an emacs server
whose name is exported through a environment variable. This variable
has a different value depending on the desktop I used.

After that in my bashrc I do:

export EDITOR="emacsclient -s $EMACS_SERVER_NAME"

and that's it. Each time I start a term in emacs and start an application
that uses EDITOR, it start an emacsclient in the ritght emacs desktop.

But I agree this solution works only inside an emacs term unlike the
solution you pointed out. But that's my first step in "do it all in emacs !"

;)

And as the author said with emacs tty-muti-support, this is now useless.

Thanks again but I'm planning to get rid of mutt and to use either gnus or
mh-e. I need to test both of them first to get an opinion.
