If you make a mouse down on a email address of a mail/news header, a popup menu appears which asks whether you want to write a email to this person or if you want to add this person to the address book. Enhancements: a) The menu should pop up on mouse up, not on mouse button down b) the email address should be draggable to mail composition filed, so you can add an email address to your already opend mail (This is useful if you want to add someone from a different, but related email or if the reply-to did something unuseful) It could be considered to enable this drag'n'drop behaviour on all header items: Treat it as normal text. Then you can do things like: In (drag newsgroup name) (drag From: item ["name <foo@bar>"]) wrote on (drag date) ... For the newsgroup name, it should contain the 'news:newsgroup.name', but when pasted to the address field, the protocol ('news:') should be removed. (See similar bug for removing 'mail:')
Change group as it turned out -- while writing -- that this isn't really compositon but rather Mail window fontend.
