One correction --it is not "their mail", iow. when I use gvim as
external editor within Claws-mail, then Claws handles headers and when I
invoke 'external editor' with "Edit with external editor", gvim only
handles body of the language starting with:

means that usually there is only need to handle one or maximum two
levels of quotes '>'.

which are due to contact with the material senses. O son of Kuntī, 
such pleasures have a beginning and an end, and so the wise man does 
not delight in them.
