Description T. Gries 2004-11-05 19:12:13 UTC
When you visit a user X page (or user_talk X page) to send an email to this user
X, the wiki (1.3.7) wants to hijack you to the Main_page.

It makes no sense to go to Main_page.

I propose: to return back to the page from which you sent the mail which is the
user X (or user_talk page X).
no hijacking, please :-)

Please can someone fix this ?

Still hijacking !! Currently, you are returned to the Main_Page (or prepared to
return to it when you click onto the link - after sending a usermail), but
really more  logically would it, to ***return to the last visited page***, which
was the User: or User_talk: page of the recipient.

Please can someone of the developers fix this ? (please also fix this in CVS
HEAD, if not yet done. I can't fix it)
