Q: how can I attach multiple files to an outbound email with a minimum amount of fuss?
mu4e (which reuses
message-mode, if that helps) to work with email. I often need to send emails with multiple attachments.
mml-attach-file to handle attachments.
So far so good. However: it's an unpleasant task to use multiple attachments.
mml-attach-file prompts for each file anew, which is time-consuming when the file is buried deep in a subtree.
It is almost always the case that, when I need to attach multiple files, they are all in the same directory. In this situation, how can I convince
mml-attach-file to detect an attachment in the existing message buffer and, if it finds one, use that attachment's directory as the default for the next file I attempt to attach?
NB: If one digs into the source code,
mml-attach-file relies on
mml-minibuffer-read-file, which in turn uses either
PS: I'm aware of How to attach multiple files in
message-mode, but there's no answer there.
