Small improvement that can halve the number of actions when responding to memos :-
Currently, double-clicking in the Inbox opens the selected message in a new tab.  Hitting reply composes a Reply form, so now you have two tabs.  On sending the reply, the message opened in read-mode is sitting there and normally needs to be closed manually unless you're experimenting with how many tabs you can have before Notes complains :)
Typically the Esc key gets a hot workout.
I'd like to have a preference which automatically closes the message either as soon as Reply is composed or when the reply is sent.

do yo mean "Automatically close original e-mail when replying/forwarding"?

This option already exists in 8.5.x.

Thanks for pointing that out, although I can't find it in 8.5.3. In 8.5.2 it is documented here, but the 8.5.3 dialog has changed

Also interesting to note "LO66596: 'AUTOMATICALLY CLOSE ORIGINAL E-MAIL WHEN REPLYING/FORWARDING' NOT WORKING" IN 8.5.2 (link below). Have Lotus pulled the preference in 8.5.3?

I was using an old Mail template - upgraded template and now the preference appears. If it is not working properely it's a bug so not an idea here :) I will withdraw this one.
