            Bug ID: 3790
           Summary: Compose window should allow to add custom headers to
                    the message
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.14.1
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: UI/Compose Window

Sometimes, when creating messages, it is required to add custom headers to it.
it should be possible to do so. Either by being able to open the complete
message (including headers) in an external editor, or by being able to add new
headers to the list of compose headers.

it is already possible to add headers using scripting. Using the
~/.claws-mail/python-scripts/auto/compose_any script containing:

    clawsmail.compose_window.add_header('Foo', 'bar')

The only problem with that solution is that the header name cannot be
customized in the claws mail UI and must be set in the script itself. When you
want to change the headers, you have to change the script before you open the
compose window.

A Tool>Add custom header that prompt for the header name and run the above
function would work very well for me.

Use case: create control messages for a newgroup server I manage. The special
"Control:" and "Approved:" headers must be set.
