I want to change the behavior of the mail module slightly. I want to always open the full email composer and never the small preview composer that works inline.

"Reply" and "Send a message" open normaly tha small inline composer.

Is that easily achivable?

Version 8.

The reason for this change is, that in the small composer the situation with followers and recipients is not clearly visible to users.

Should be somewhere in mail.js:

/* Call the on_compose_message on the thread of this message. */

on_message_reply:function (event) {




return false;
