Message Template

Just upgraded to version 3 (3.0.13) and am very impressed. One of my main reasons for upgrading was to get the Mailboxes feature.

In creating (or editing) a Mailbox, you are able to set a Message Template. 2 questions:

1. Exactly what is this for?

2. Should it be maintained between edits of a mailbox?

I find that if I create a mailbox and type some text in the Message Template and then save the mailbox, when I next go in and edit the same mailbox, the Message Template is blank? This doesn't seem right!

Its used as a signature for when you reply to messages... Basically when you hit reply, it puts the template in the body (And then the replied message after it) and puts your cursor at the top of the text edit box.

It most definitely should be saved between mailbox edits.  Are you successfully completing the edit?  Or is it giving you an error?  I can't reproduce the problem here, so any information (screenshots would help) and detailed steps would be great ...
