This plugin allows Mac OS X users to send e-mails from Vim using the Mail.app application.

It provides syntax highlighting, auto-completion for header name, e-mail and attachment.

To start a new e-mail, use the command :NewMailApp, which will open a new buffer where you can start writing. To send the e-mail, use the command :SendMailApp.
install details
Mac OS X 10.5 or later is required for this plug-in and Mail.app must be configured to send messages. To install it, unzip the MailApp.zip file and place every file in the respective folder inside your "~/.vim" folder, keeping the same folder structure, except for MailApp.bundle that should go inside your "Documents" folder.

   |    |-doc/mailapp.txt
   |    |-ftplugin/mailapp.vim
   |    |-plugin/MailApp.vim
   |    |-syntax/mailapp.vim

If you place MailApp.bunlde somewhere else, you need to set the 'MailApp_bundle' option in your vimrc so MailApp.vim can find it.

After you placed the files in their place, run ":helptags ~/.vim/doc" to update the help files tags.
