Excellent! That worked. Thank you!

Ok, I was able to send the message through gnus, even though I don't (normally) 
use it as a mail reader.

Almost. It looks like org-mime puts the actual contents of the buffer into the 
text/plain part, including links, etc. that would normally be hidden on 
display. I think it would be
more useful to make the text/plain part contain what would be output from 
exporting to text. But maybe that's just my preference.

Thank you!
