Context Based message editing

When you copy and paste some text that contains some form of context relevant to where that text is, you often have to edit the text, depending on what you are doing.

You might send the first person (Fred, say) a message such as "Hey Fred - Andy is busy for the meeting today and I am as well. Shall we start a fresh in 2012?". Once this message has been sent, you would send the same message to other people, slightly changing the content accordingly. I.e. you might send a similar message to Bob, such as, "Hey Bob - Andy is busy for the meeting today and I am as well. Shall we start a fresh in 2012?".

    While the basis of the message is the same each time, there is some context within it which requires manual editing, according to who its being sent to.
