Description

a year ago
I use Thunderbird's drafts--A LOT.

I use it for note-taking, as it is convenient to be able to quickly turn a note into an email, as well as just take advantage of the ability to have notes be listed.

I'd like ongoing project notes (drafts) to be stored along with a project containing non-draft emails (i.e., any other folder) without needing to continually copy the old draft into a new one, move the new one, and delete the old one.

Drafts ought to support being edited in place wherever they are in one's hierarchy (and ideally one should be able to turn any other message into a draft too (without copy-paste) and edit it in place as well).

That's what "Edit As New Message" does, no?

Yes, though I'd like to have it work more like "Edit old message"--not making a new copy but letting a person annotate (or correct) information others have sent.

Yes, I know it'd be a potential foot-gun to some people, but also potentially quite useful. For example, if one is holding onto emails as a reminder to do something, one could add some info inline in another color to specify one's own intended approach to addressing the writer's concerns or question. And I know there is "Convert to->Task", but this creates yet a new item stored somewhere else--if it made a task but created an internal link to the email (like old Palm software let you do with paperclipping anything you wanted together), that'd be pretty good too.
