How to resume writing an email

I have FC-5 and use KDE.

This is not a Linux question. It could pertain to any platform or email program. I use Thunderbird.

I might be writing an email but not send it. In that situation the writing is usually saved in "Drafts". But for this question the writing could be saved anywhere.

But for this question let's say it's in "Drafts". My question is: How can I get that writing back in the create, compose, write, etc., part of my email program, so I could continue writing it and eventually send it. Right now in that situation I have to "Forward" it if I want to edit/send or just send.

I don't use thunderbird. In KMail all I need to do is to double-click
the saved mail, and send it.

You do the same thing in Thunderbird. I don't know how you can say it's not a software specific question, because clearly it is!
