Hello, I recently got a message from someone via their wordpress openID. When I try replying from the inbox page, when I hit the send button it complains about their wordpress url not being a valid user name.

I did manage to send a reply by using the link in the email I received about the message (which uses their 'ext_9999' identifier rather than their wordpress url as the "name"). But I thought I should still send this report so y'all are aware of the inconsistency/bugginess.

Hitting Reply from the Inbox page should, in fact, automagically map to the ext_XXXX username, without the user having to apply workarounds.
#1691, #1615, and #303 might be useful to look at for guidance!
