Reply to a message window in the same window (option)

Reported by larrycz | June 1st, 2011 @ 09:28 PM

I would prefer if reply was composed in a message window reused the same window rather than opening a new one. This is standard behaviour in Outlook or Apple Mail.

This does not affect a message viewer window, where you always expect a new window of course.

Alternatively this could be a configurable option, but better to keep the number of options to minimum.

    The usual problem is a leftover message window after a reply has been sent. This window must be closed manually.

    The same window dimensions don’t necessarily work for both tasks (reading and composing). Especially with the Markdown preview pane enabled.

    I think if replying would just close the window of the message being replied to, we’d all be happy.

    +1 for the option of the original feature.
