The following applies to pan-0.1xx, including 0.133.  The old 0.14.x 
series is no longer under development.

There's the ability, but it quotes it...  and pan actually uses the 
mailto: handler configured for your desktop environment.

To get the headers, you'd hit the view-header toggle and select them, as 
pan follows the usual convention of quoting the selection only, if 
anything's selected.

To set pan up for mail, use the configuration dialog, apps tab.  Then use 
the mailto: header instead of or in addition to the newsgroups: header, 
and pan will forward it to your mail client as configured to do so.  Do 
note that if both pan and your mail client are configured to add a sig, 
you'll get both of them unless you delete one.
