Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.

Familiar face

Use edit as new (ctrl+E). It is on the Message menu and then click send.

@MattAuSupportMaybe a button for this function would be good if your looking at a allready sent email, given there is no such button already.

"Edit as New" should be a button like "reply" for mails send and not 'hidden' in a context menu that is otherwise almost never used.

Yes would be Great when something Goes wrong (not if) to "retry" the action both modify or resend

Sometimes when sending an email, a network error or other error can occur. Other times, Thunderbird takes a very long time when sending a message and can freeze or crash, making it necessary to use Task Manager (or Ctrl+Alt+Delete on Windows) to close Thunderbird. After any of these occurrences, it is often unclear whether or not your message was sent, so it would be nice having a quick way to resend the same "sent" message (or message you attempted to send).

As others previously mentioned, Edit as New from the Message menu works too. Ctrl+E on Windows is currently the fastest way. The command may be different on Apple Mac computers.

@tbarstow care to take a couple minutes and explain this idea to me? It is a foreign concept to me why you'd want to send a mail again.
