I've noticed this is the behavior used by many e-mail clients:  when I
double-click a message in the inbox, it gets opened in a new window.  Similarly,
when I compose a new message, the composer comes up in a new window.  I find my
system too cluttered when a new window opens for each message.

I'd really like a feature wherein the message (to read or to compose) opens in
the same window as the inbox list, replacing the inbox list (or whatever list is
open), so that I really only ever see one window. Then, when I'm done reading or
writing, I either close or send that message, and return to the previous view. 

Eudora follows this model and I really like it; it seems very clean. It would be
cool to have a checkbox in preferences allow this behavior.
