Description (last modified by tboeckel)


Currently redirected but not yet sent mails can be moved back to the Drafts folder for further editing. However, YAM is not yet aware that it has to handle such mails in a different manner like it did originally.


Mails to be edited must be analyzed before the write window with the corresponding GUI elements in created. Currently the window is created first and after that the mail is analyzed and then the GUI is filled accordingly. But at this time the decision whether the write window has to appear as normal write window (write, edit, reply, forward) or as a redirect window has been done already.

Enhancement recommendation

Either restructure the process to analyze the mail ahead of creating the write window or relayout the write window in normal mode to be suitable for redirecting mails as well, i.e. disable or hide all GUI elements which are not needed.

(In [6559]) * mui/WriteWindow.c: as a temporary workaround for future changes the write window will not allow to save the mail to the Drafts folder when it is in redirecting mode. This is necessary as there is currently no way edit yet unsent but redirected mails in the Drafts folder. Furthermore redirected mails have been excluded from the autosave process anyway as there is not much to loose except the modified addresses. This refs #383.
