[Geary] User interface


First off thanks for your work. I'm surprised trying this out for the first time how well it works.

Just a note on the user interface. You have a conversation styled layout for emails. With all emails in an email chain being displayed in a list similar to the way posting works on social networking or a forum. This is a great improvement over many traditional email clients. 

However you are suggesting through UI design that this is a system similar to posting on a social network then users will expect an action analogous to the "double post". In gmail this is achieved by finding your sent email and clicking "reply", which automatically loads the address of the recipient back into the "To" box. Geary is doing the logical thing for email which is loading the "From" target of  the email into the "To" box which means it suggests sending to yourself. 

What do you think?
