That's great... :-) I'll think about a more general solution.
some other detail before re-sending the message. By "sending again", I
mean specifically to a copy to the DRAFT box a message from the SENT
box, while leaving the original message in the SENT box. With Balsa, I
am able to TRANSFER a message from the SENT box to the DRAFT box and
then modify and re-send it, but then I have lost the record of the
original message. Of course, I can copy to myself each message I send,
but I prefer to retain in the SENT box a copy of everything I have sent.
Implementing it in the context (or the mailbox?) menu sounds like a good
idea to me. However, you *can* actually _copy_ a message (as with other
gnome apps) by dragging it to the destination mailbox with the Crtl key
pressed (note the "+" in the dnd icon). I checked that it works for
copying from Sent to Draft. You can then double-click the message, and it
opens in the composer window, with all old attachments.
I did not check, though, what happens with multipart/signed messages. The
"old" signature is an attachment, and if you send it again with the old
signature, and don't sign it again, the recipient will usually get a
message where the signature doesn't verify properly, i.e. a message which
looks like one which has been tampered with on it's way through the net.
So I guess in this case you should always remove the old signature and
sign the message again.
