Ticket #77 (new Feature)
More flexible reply/forward templates
|Reported by:||daboo@…||Owned by:||somebody|
I was just thinking that another way would be via cabinets and the introduction of 'reply styles'. :) You create a reply style as you would an alert style and then associate it with a cabinet. The reply styles could be included in the reply options popup as well, so that a selection on a per message basis would still be possible.
Actually an identity may be a better choice because identities can be tied to accounts or mailboxes. So a reply option in an identity tied to a mailbox would mean any replies by default from that mailbox would use the options specific to that mailbox. The same behavior ought to apply to forward options to.
The other thing that has come up is having a more flexible way to specify a reply 'template'. The right way to do that would be to redesign the reply/forward dialogs to add %quoted and %cursor substitutions that would insert quoted text and move the cursor to the location. Then there would be no need for separate Header/Footer? panels - one single text panel would do. What's more there should probably be a %signature option too to allow the signature to be inserted at some arbitrary location.
