When I right-click on an email item in any of my mailboxes a menu pops up containing such items as Reply, Forward, etc. First, what is the correct name for this menu? I would normally call it a "context menu" but I want to be sure that is the correct terminology in this case.
Anyway, several years ago I customized it to meet my needs. However, it seems that as various TheBat! updates were installed the customization gradually disappeared and it's now back to its default configuration. Because TheBat! has so many configuration options I am now unable to remember how to add/remove/reposition items on this menu, and I'm not sure what to look for in the Help items. A simple step-by-step refresher would be appreciated :-)
Go to Workspace | Toolbars | Customize and pick the item 'Message List Pop-up Menu'. I think that's the one you want.
(I guess the location of the Customize command is misleading, in that you can use it to customize more than just the toolbars..!)
If your newly customized settings don't stick, that might be due to a bug in recent versions. Some people have been having problems getting their toolbar configuration to stick. I don't know if that bug also interferes with context menu settings. If it does, today's v9.1.16 release might fix it.

I installed v9-1-16 and I still couldn't do anything with any of the commands. Aside from that, however, the two commands I actually want to add are not even listed. They are "Resend" and "Edit as new". I use these more than any other commands in the Message List Pop-Up Menu. I looked at the commands available in my v8.8.9 installation on another machine and strangely enough "Edit as new" was no longer a choice in it either - just "Resend". It seems that these things have been deteriorating over time and I just didn't notice it. Although both commands are still present in the Message dropdown in the main menu, that is less convenient for me.
I tried upgrading to an even older version of TheBat! but for some reason simply running the installer doesn't change anything. I'm assuming I'll need to completely uninstall the current version before running the installer but I haven't tried that yet.

v8.8.2 still has both commands. I've just added them to my message list popup menu, and then I compared the 'before' and 'after' versions of tbuser.DEF, in which these settings appear to be stored. Well, the changes added 7 lines to one of the sections of this text file, as follows:
