[RCD] Mail-Followup-To support

Hello Devs,

I just like to remind you of my Mail-Followup-To/Mail-Reply-To patch ;)

As posted to the bug tracker [1], MFT/MRT-support consists of four
"sub-features":

* Respect MFT / MRT when replying to a message that contains these
  headers.
* When viewing a message that contains these headers, show them.
  This is not absolutely required, but makes reply behaviour more
  transparent.
* When composing a new message it should be possible to set these
  headers. I'd prefer the same way it is already possible to set
  Reply-To.
* Let RoundCube automatically set MFT in outgoing messages according to
  a list of subscribed mailing list that can be configured by the user.

The patch I attached to the ticked solves item 1.  This is useful even
without the other items so I'd be glad if you take a look at it.

For general information about Mail-Followup-To please read [2].  You may
also like to read Mozilla Bug 204339 [3] since there was a large
discussion about usefulness of MFT.


For Item 2 I have another patch that I attached to the ticked today.

If Mail-Reply-To is is present, Reply-To gets hidden, because MRT
overrides Reply-To.  This keeps header view simpler.


Daniel
