I use `orgstruct-mode' as a minor mode when composing a message in
message-mode (my mailer is Gnus.)

This is as simple as:

  (add-hook 'message-mode-hook 'turn-on-orgstruct)

Then you can edit your email as if it where an Org file.  You can move
headings, items of a list, etc.  The only drawback is that the default
key for sending an email is C-c C-c, which is also a *very* important
key in Org.

For example, if the point is on a checkbox, C-c C-c will toggle it.  But
what if the point is not exactly at a position where Org's C-c C-c have
a specific meaning?  The email will be sent, which might surprise the
user.  For now I solve this by not using Org's C-c C-c key while
composing an email, but there might be better solution.

I also used to have orgtbl-mode turned on by default, but I'm now
turning it on and off explicitely:

  (add-hook 'message-mode-hook 'turn-on-orgtbl)
