Author/Date Resend a sent message

Hi

I resent an already sent message with a few changes in it, and the new one replaced the original. Is this the intended behaviour? Maybe i'm wrong, but i think that the "Sent" folder should keep all de sent messages (i mean, it should represent the "message sent history").

I really like this programm :)

Currently openning something from the sent messages folder and resending it doesn't create a new object. This is by design, because I like it that way. That only the most recent version is stored.

I don't see the point of saving all the different versions of an email.

Sorry if I disagree, but they are 2 messages, because 2 messages were sent, even if they are equal (what was not the case). But it's ok for me. I can work with copy and paste.

Question?
If you changed the subject line to something
like "New Update" or add on to the end "Ver2"

Would it still be the same email?

Yes it will still be the same email, just edited to contain different text.

...and if I change the "To:" field because I forgot to send the message to my mother? and, because I am forgotten, I send her the message again, and again, and again...
And if she has some kind of spam filter that...?

Now seriously: I still think that we should record everything we send to everybody (a simple check-box?...).

But, more or less easily, I can do the job (I understand what you mean, and will not argue anymore)

Scribe is great

I beg to disagree. Besides, what Carlos Rocha proposes is the way OE handles the situation. I know you're just one guy, but in this issue there seems to be some stuborness involved.

Have I told you what great product you have? Pity it isn't Open Source...

Cheers,
