FSO Milestone 5.5 Preview Image - using Zhone to send a message

Clicking on the Airmail icon (Messages?) gives me a list of existing 
messages including some I have sent from another mobile.  I have myself 
setup as a contact with this other mobile number. Clicking on "Open" 
does nothing if no message is highlighted.  Clicking on the button under 
"Open" with the four squares on it gives a menu with:

Send	Delete
Forward	Reply

- how do you compose a message?

If a message is highlighted,  Clicking on "Open" merely opens the 
message then clicking on the button under "Open" with the four squares 
on it does nothing.

Composing a message does not seem user-friendly let alone idiot proof . .
