Technical plugin name is responses.

Plugin help template

Plugin provides variable substitution in the compose response templates by injecting fields derived from the composed mail headers (from, to, cc), and thus can make mail messages more personal.

Plugin also adds support for html-based response templates.

For example, assuming the following compose message headers:

from: "thomas cube" <thomas.cube@mailer.net>
to:   "machniak, aleksander" <aleks@example.com>

this sample template with variables:

    {to_head}, hello.
    Thank you,
    {from_full} <{from_mail}>

will produce the following result after insert:

    Aleksander, hello.
    Thank you,
    Thomas Cube <thomas.cube@mailer.net>
