Re: Can metamail be disabled in elm?

Easily?  No.  The problem is that if 
a) it detects metamail when building, it will compile in support.
Then on mime mail, it will call metamail with no fallback if command not
or b) if no metamail found at config, mime mail is ignored.

I don't like b.  Obviously.

I might be able to get it to "fallback" in the case of a), but I
don't know.  The last time I hacked at the source I recall thinking that
I'd never do it again. ;)  I've written some nasties, but...
