I'm not sure that we want to encourage using the Outbox as a second 
Draftbox.  Presumably you'd want to block the message from being sent 
while editing it, which would require some new locking mechanism.  For 
myself, I'd rather have the place where queued but unsent messages are 
stored be less visible than a mailbox, but that would also require new

Melanie's answered this one.

There's code in cvs for remembering size.  Isn't placement a wm

You don't need the mouse at all!  GtkTreeView has good keybindings, 
space-bar selects a message for opening in its own window, and ctrl+W 
closes the window.

Well, it could.  You're suggesting that the default identity should be 
changed when the currently shown mailbox changes?  (Note that several 
mailboxes can be `currently open'.)  We might need a new checkbutton on 
one of the dialogs: `Use this identity by default while mailbox is 
showing' (and code to support it, of course!).

Sure--perhaps after there's been some time for discussion of the issues 
on this list.
