Hi Dan,

That sounds like a good idea, I've added it to a fledgling task list
packaged in the README at [1].  I'd say there are two options.

1) which you mentioned saving the entire exported content to the
   kill-ring.  One problem here is that everything is still text and
   pastable only *before* the mime export process, which means that
   linked images wouldn't resolve after pasting into the email client.

2) having the function generate a new mail buffer containing the
   exported content.  This buffer would need to have it's
   `buffer-file-name' set, for images to resolve during export.  I'm not
   sure how this should best work.

Thanks -- Eric
