This recipe appears to work with the current [*1*] Thunderbird from Suse.
The following Thunderbird extensions are needed:
External Editor 0.5.4
1) Prepare the patch as a text file using your method of choice.
2) Before opening a compose window, use Edit->Account Settings to
uncheck the "Compose messages in HTML format" setting in the
"Composition & Addressing" panel of the account to be used to send the
3) In the main Thunderbird window, _before_ you open the compose window
for the patch, use Tools->about:config to set the following to the
mailnews.send_plaintext_flowed => false

*1* Version 1.0 (20041207) from the MozillaThunderbird-1.0-5 rpm of Suse
9.3 professional updates.
*2* It may be possible to do this with about:config and the following
settings but I haven't tried, yet.
mail.html_compose => false
mail.identity.default.compose_html => false
mail.identity.id?.compose_html => false
