Is there any way I can reply to emails from within the main window? That is, something like turning the bottom-right panel into a text editing area, instead of opening the compose window.

It's perhaps just a personal foible, but I find it both slow and mentally jarring to be constantly moving in and out of the main context -- especially when I'm ploughing through emails writing one-line replies.

Alternatively, is there any other mail client which handles this better? I've tried evolution and claws, without success.

The Thunderbird Conversations add-on has an inline reply feature.
