Behavior for "Reply".

Reported by macmath | February 18th, 2011 @ 09:44 PM

I have noticed the following behavior of "Reply".

Selecting the "Reply" button from the toolbar or striking Command-R from the keyboard results in a new message window addressed to the primary sender and with a "CC" field containing the addresses of the "CC" field of the original email.

Question: Can one have the default behavior be only a reply to the original sender but still being able to "Reply-All" if desired?

As a related aside: It appears that it is at least planned that the default headers of a new message window could be set to contain a CC field, a BCC field, and/or a Reply-to field. However the selection of this option is greyed-out. Is it just not fully implemented yet, or is mine 'broken'?

Thank you.

    Detailed Reply/Reply All behavior is on the ToDo.

    The option is greyed-out, because you are already seeing the default.
    Change the displayed headers and you'll be able to set it as new

    That doesn't work for me. After changing the displayed headers, using the pull-down menu in which the 'Use as default headers' shows up, and going back to try to select 'Use as default headers', it is still greyed-out.

    You are correct! I'm sorry I did not check the first time.

    The behavior is broken (I don't know when that happened). I never
    noticed because I use the default settings myself and almost never use
    the cc-field.

    I'm sure it worked in an earlier version but just broke along the way somewhere. I appreciate all the work you have been doing on Mailmate. I am transferring out of Mail.app as my default and into Mailmate.

    The “Use as Default Headers” problem is fixed in the next update.
