But I'll try at least to make some lisp code to convert per key-binding. Do you thinking it's advisable to call cygpath for doing the conversion? Are there some internal bindings already for this in Cygwin Emacs?

Extremely sorry about this. With Apple Mail I use a "modern" Mail client not anymore tailored to classic mailing lists - so I have to set things like Plain-text setting, 70-character wrapping and correct reply-to by hand…

> I do think it's advisable to call cygpath, and I don't know of any bindings in the code that you can use.  But I had to do something similar once in order to make browse-url work properly on Cygwin.  (In that case I had to convert from POSIX paths to Windows paths.)  Take a look at the Cygwin-specific code in the function browse-url-file-url in lisp/net/browse-url.el.  You may be able to use a similar idea.

Thanks heaps for this! I had a quick look at browse-url.el and it has the right stuff in there. Cool!

Cheers, Leo
