Odoo9: No way to answer emails from inbox

Although this questions already was mentioned in this forum a few month ago, I would like to raise it again as there was no answer given:

Odoo9: I configured Email Messaging and it works all fine. I can receive and send mails without further issues. Now, when I receive a mail from somebody (doesn't matter if it is already a contact or not) there is no REPLY Button in the Inbox in order to answer the mail. In Odoo8 that was easily posible. So why isn't it in Odoo9?

What I know so far is that if the conversation is attached to an document or a movement in Odoo, I can answer the message. Newly messages from outside can't be answered. 

Any ideas why it is like that? Is there a way to answer mails? Did I miss a new concept?

Thanks for helping

Emails related to a specific document (like an Opportunity, or an Order) can be replied to.  

Hover over the email to see the buttons:

Where there is no specific document, clicking on the email address open your regular mail client, and clicking on the Company Name takes you to the Partner record where you can email them.
