I think my needs a lot easier.  At the Compose window, I'd like to be
able to choose one of the three methods.

FWIW, I had migrated away from Kontact when it wasn't stable enough
for my needs (to Thunderbird) but now I'm thinking it may be mature
enough for me.  I'm test driving it inside a VM.

If by /shortcut editor/ you mean the /Configure Shortcuts/ screen,
yes, I looked there before posting.  I don't see any /Action/ related
to an External Editor.

I do see what you mean with mysqld chewing up quite a bit of
resources.  At the moment, it's quite CPU bound.  Almost suggesting
we're missing an index or two.  Although it could be that we're
issuing many, many point-SELECT's.  I may enable some query logging to
see what's going on.
