Mailsmith ? OK, here is a simple AppleScript which makes it easier[1] to generate a new message (as opposed to a reply to a message) to the sender of the currently selected[2] message:

        = = = = = = = = 
tell application "Mailsmith"
        set myRecipient to originator of selection as string
        set msg to make new message window
        tell msg to make new to_recipient with properties {address string:myRecipient}
end tell

        = = = = = = = = 
The fourth line:

        tell msg to... ... ...{address string:myRecipient}
*is* a single line.

I've assigend the menu key:

to this script.



[1] There are, of course, some built-in ways to do this, but the only single-click option, is itself only available if you have the "mail status bar" expanded.

[2] Clearly, there is no handler in the script for checking the selection context and adapting if required, so it will just fail if the current selection is not a message
