Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 145860
Reply in Sent folder sends email to me. Should be to recipiet...

Description of problem:
Pressing reply to an email that is in the Sent folder creates a reply
email with a recipient of <my email address>. One has to use "Reply
To" to send an email to the original recipient.
I understand that Reply should theoretically send an email to the
sender, ie me, but it is a pain in the butt. Lets say I send an
email to a friend and then want to send him another addendum email.
I used to press Reply to create the second email. Doing so creates
an email addressed to me. In other email applications, pressing
Reply on a Sent email creates an email addressed to the original
I much prefer the second action to the first. I must <accidentally>
use "Reply" instead of "Reply To" on a Sent email about 5 times a
week. Every time it happens I have to copy the subject of the
incorrectly addressed email, create a proper reply, using "Reply To",
paste in the text and then resend it.
If people complain about Reply addressing emails to the original
recipient, you might want to add a program option covering this
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send an email
2. Goto the Sent folder. Select the email. Press Reply.
The created email will be addressed to the sender, me.
I'd like the created email to be addressed to the original email's
