Resending outbound mail in 10.1's mail.app Apps
In previous versions of mail.app, if you wanted to resend a sent message, it was quite easy. You simply double-clicked the message in the "Sent messages" folder, made any changes you wanted to, and then hit the "Send" button.

In 10.1, when you try this you'll notice there's no "Send" button. To resend a sent message, highlight the message in the "Sent messages" folder and then select File -> Restore from Draft. This works even if you didn't save the message as a draft in the first place. Restore from Draft will bring up the original message and recipient, along with the send button.

Not quite as easy as before, but it is still possible.

If you don't want to got to the file menu, you can simply hold down the alt key and double click the message you want to resend. Then you'll have the original message with the send button in place.

It's a bit inconsistent...

On many machines (mine included), that opens the email as all quoted text, and addressed to yourself. Others (like you, it seems) don't have the same problem.

To save going to the file menu, you could always make your own keyboard shortcut for "Restore from Draft" by editing the appropriate .nib file in the Mail.app package.
