Hello Ervin,

I may be missing something here, but selecting a message in the sent
folder (single click) allows me to print it from the 'File menu', or by
right clicking on the message in the summary view and selecting
'Print...'.  If I double click the file, I indeed get a new compose
window and can not print from it, but I can still right click in
summary view or select File -> Print from the main menu.
