[Reportbug-maint] Bug#759028: Needs a way to edit raw SMTP message

Package: reportbug
Version: 6.5.0+nmu1
Severity: normal

In case of an SMTP error, there is basically no quick&easy way for the
user to correct the error. Example:

Connecting to reportbug.debian.org via SMTP...
SMTP send failure: (550, 'No valid sender found in the From:, Sender: and Reply-to:
headers'). Do you want to retry (or else save the report and exit)?  [Y|n|q|?]? 

How am I supposed to fix it? A basic solution would be to offer the user
to edit the raw message and add the missing headers.
