Need redirect after sending message
Not sure this is a bug fix as much as a fix for human behavior.

One of my users was having issues with multiple copies of their mail being sent out and it took us a while to figure it out. Turns out he was in the habit of reloading his inbox page to check for new messages. If he does it after sending a message it resends the message with each reload because the submission page is the last page in the cache. This wouldn't happen if there was a redirect after sending a message.

I highly recommend this fix as I am certain it is happening to other users. Not sure how common this behavior is, but the concept (ie why you shouldn't reload the page) is difficult to explain to your everyday user.

I'll add this to my todo list for a future release. I myself are used to clicking on the Home link to 'refresh', but I can see how this could be a problem for some users.
