Bug Description

When using the 'Send New Email' on the 'Applicants' screen (HR Module), the pop-up window 'Send Email' has the 'Reply To' as a required field. In our setup the 'Reply To' comes up empty. I have NOT added any extra modules or done any extra configuration to see if it is automatically filled in from somewhere else.

If there is no stored value for the 'Reply To' field, the default should be the same as the 'From' field, or changed to be a not required field.

Tweaks are likely to be made in ..
/usr/share/pyshared/openerp-server/addons/crm/wizard/crm_send_email.py
/usr/share/pyshared/openerp-server/addons/crm/wizard/crm_send_email_view.xml

++ 'reply_to' : fields.char('Reply To', size=128, required=False, help="Reply-to of the Sales team defined on this case"),
-- 'reply_to' : fields.char('Reply To', size=128, required=True, help="Reply-to of the Sales team defined on this case"),

Makes the field no longer required.

The mail configuration on my test machine defaults the 'Reply To' to the 'From'.
