Mac OS X: Mail failing to apply “Replied-to” flag properly

A minor, but annoying bug in Mail for OS X:

  1. Open Mail
  2. Select a message in IN box.
  3. Click on “Reply” button.
  4. Start typing the reply and press Save.
  5. Quit Mail without sending the reply.
  6. Relaunch Mail.
  7. Resume typing reply.
  8. Send reply.

Mail fails to flag the original message in the IN box as a message that has been replied to, i.e. it has somehow “lost” the connection between the message and its reply, even though the reply was created by clicking on the “Reply” button while the original message was selected.

Since there is no way in Mail to apply the “Replied to” flag to a message manually after the fact, this means that the original message will never be flagged properly.
