#106 closed enhancement (fixed)

forward E-Mails menu with sub menues

Release Notes:


It would be nice if you can add a submenu to the forward menues because now you must change the config to change the forward method for forwarded E-Mails.

Now we have a config option how to forward a E-Mail. This option works global for the Menues (Main and Context) and for the Toolbar button.

It would be nice if you can change so that the option works only for the Toolbar and for the Menues we have the possibility to select the forward method directly. like e.g. Menu -> Forward as attachments... inlined...

BTW: i know here is a hotkey to change the method for the Toolbar button but a menue have more possibilities.

Please elaborate why with a menu entry you would have more possibilities. IMHO a shortcut key already addresses that perfectly and I fail to see why an explicit menu entry would be better. Please understand that we try to keep the YAM menu simple so we have to think about each case carefully.

More possibilities is of course wrong. The forward function is at least here
a very rarely used function and therfore i always forget the shortcut key
for this function.
So instead a 'Forward...' menu entry in the message menue it would be really
more intuitive and helpfull to see a menu entry 'Forward' with 2 submenues
'inlined...' and 'as attachments...'. The submenu entries should of course
also contain the shortcut keys for the functions.
