When you start an e-mail it's possible to select Followup-to in the dropdown
menu in the header pane. Since Followup-to is a newsgroups-only feature it
should only be visible when a newsgroup posting is composed.

This is invalid, IMO. How I would send a message to a newsgroup and send a CC
(for example) someone with ordinary email?

Comment 2

If you are sending email to several receipients, one of which is a mailing list
gated to a usenet newsgroup, or the moderator address of a moderated newsgroup,
the use of Followup-to might be justified.  What do the RFCs say?

MASS-CHANGE:
This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but has been without a comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project. This means that it was logged against the old Mozilla suite and we cannot determine that it's still valid for the current SeaMonkey suite. Because of this, we are setting it to an UNCONFIRMED state.

If you can confirm that this report still applies to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it back to the NEW state along with a comment on how you reproduced it on what Build ID, or if it's an enhancement request, why it's still worth implementing and in what way.
If you can confirm that the report doesn't apply to current SeaMonkey 2.x nightly builds, please set it to the appropriate RESOLVED state (WORKSFORME, INVALID, WONTFIX, or similar).
If no action happens within the next few months, we move this bug report to an EXPIRED state.

This bug report is registered in the SeaMonkey product, but still has no comment since the inception of the SeaMonkey project 5 years ago.

Because of this, we're resolving the bug as EXPIRED.

If you still can reproduce the bug on SeaMonkey 2 or otherwise think it's still valid, please REOPEN it and if it is a platform or toolkit issue, move it to the according component.
