Changing the current message while in the mail editor
At the beginning of a line while in the mail editor, you can use either the ~e subcommand or the ~v subcommand as shown in these examples.
|~e||Activates the e editor or other editor that you define in the .mailrc file.|
|~v||Activates the vi editor or other editor that you define in the .mailrc file.|
This enables you to edit the text of the current message. When you leave the different editor, you return to the mail editor.
