Default is user@`hostname`. Probably a config option to override
this. Can override per-message with Esc-f at Compose screen.

Seems to do so by default.

You can postpone at least one message. Never tried postpoing

Hit a at compose screen and choose file.

Uses mailcap by default. Select message in folder view. Hit v. Select
attachment you want to view. Hit enter to view, s to save, d to delete.
It's the business.
