When you right-click on a e-mail address in the header field of the messagepane, 
Copy should appear in the context menu.

Currently the context menu only has:
 Add address to address book
 Send mail to

The Copy would copy the email address to the clipboard.

moving to future milestone and reassigning to mscott.

I think this context menu should share menu items with the mailto: link context 
menu in bug 32358.  Then we'd automatically have the same mnemonics in both 
menus, and internationalization teams would have fewer things to translate.

See also discussion in bug 57578 about removing this context menu :(

The context menu for these addresses should be the same as for any other e-mail 
address link in a Web page or e-mail message -- though the default item would be 
different (`Add to Address Book ...' for an address in the header pane, vs. `New 
Message' in Web page/message content).

Bug 57578 isn't about removing the context menu, it is about turning the current 
compulsory menu into a context menu.

OK - patches coming right up. I would appreciate review of these :-) 

Resetting target milestone and nsbeta1 nomination for retriage...

Hope they work - my editor does funny things with the tabs in the file, so 
there's been a little hand-hackery of the patches.

Code looks okay to me, but the documentation for CopyEmailAddress is incorrect.

Thanks! :-) Fixed. Now who do I go to for an sr=?

marking nsbeta1-, but of course, since Gervase has a patch it would be cool if
this got in.

Oops, this bug doesn't block bug 32358, since for now the context menu for e-
mail addresses in mailnews xul is different from the context menu for e-mail 
addresses in html content.
No longer blocks: 32358

sr=alecf assuming we get approval/review from a mail person
sspitzer, mscott or bienvenu: This bug has r= and sr=, it just needs a "Yes,
we'd like that" from someone in mail/news. Can that be provided?

I know Asa wants this really badly ;-)

I'd like to see this land for 0.9 if mail-news folks are OK with it. 
Whiteboard: would like for 0.9

fine with me, if that's sufficient.
It just needs someone to check it in, then. I can't, and I'm going to bed anyway
