If you want to include the page containing the mailto: , setting up a
(p)rint option offers more flexibility.  The first '%s' gets the web
page, the second '%s' prompts for a filename.  Depending on how you
set up the command line, you can give the Subject: or To: info at that
prompt.  At least with mutt, if you use the prompt for a Subject:, you
have to provide a dummy or default To: address in the command line.


PRINTER:include page, prompt for add:${HOME}/bin/mutt -i %s %s:TRUE

        includes the page in the message body, uses the prompt as the

PRINTER:mime, prompt for sub, dummy add:${HOME}/bin/mutt -a %s -s %s \

        includes the page as MIME attach., uses the prompt as the
        Subj:, provides a dummy To: for you to change
