Version: (using KDE KDE 3.5.1)
Installed from: Ubuntu Packages
At the moment (KDE 3.5.1), one can edit an email only if it is placed in the outbox or the draft folder (by pressing T).
This feature should be available for all emails in all folders. People might save a draft or an email-to-be-edited-later somewhere else, or they might want to re-open and modify a message they had already sent.
Why would you want to edit something if you're not going to send it to anybody? If you are going to send it, you can either Redirect or Send Again.
I can understand removing attachments, but changing the text?
Here's an example: I keep a lot of the emails I sent for my job, and I sometimes need to re-send a message (to the original recipient or to somebody else), but modify the text slightly. This is basically the same thing I would achieve by creating a new email, and copy / paste text from the old email in the new one. Still, a quick keyboard shortcut or button allowing me to edit the old email would save a lot of time.
Moreover, since this is already an option for emails placed in the outbox or the draft folder, I just think this should be available for all emails, in all folders.
This is a feature in Thunderbird, and I for one am using it a lot, there might be other people who do as well.
I repeat: Redirect/Forward or Send Again. This allows you to change the text before sending.
I'm asking: what use is there to edit a mail's text and NOT send it?
It will be very useful feature, I also need it very, very often. Very often people send me emails with stupid subject. When I archive that emails, I'd like to change the subject line. So please, do add this feature. It can be activated in options, so who don't need it, wouldn't have it.
Or, alternatively, it would be great if I was able to add a short note to an email.
