In regards to the attachment-icon idea, I would prefer we move in the opposite direction.  I think that clicking anywhere on the message list should only highlight the message, rather than performing any action.  This is the way that thundebird, outlook and pretty much any other windows mail application works.  I propose we remove the function of the compose window coming up when one clicks on the from address in the message list.  The can already compose an e-mail to that person by highlighting the message and clicking the reply button.  Right now we are stuck half way between gmail and thunderbird, with regards to the message list behavior, and I would prefer we move towards thunderbird rather than gmail.
