Ok, but is there a possibility to preserve the fields of the old message, but 
still be able to edit it. This would be a nice feature in the case of an entry 
with lots of attributes (set to something different then the preset values). 
After submiting the message you realize : one option was wrong and now you 
want to edit it without changing the other options again.
Is this possible?

Thank you and best regards,

Stefan
