Including third-party correspondence in ticket history?

Hi folks,

Earlier today I had to deal with a breakin.  I opened a new ticket

with the owner of the compromised machine as the requestor, then went
back and forth with him a few times by e-mail. These e-mails were done
as “replies” within the ticket, and are all recorded in the ticket history.

I also had to contact a couple of service providers, though.

I wrote e-mails to them, and received replies, outside of RT. I didn’t
want to just CC them on a reply or comment within RT, since I wanted
to change the subject line and send the message directly to the
relevant abuse addresses. Still, it would be nice to have records of
these messages included in the ticket history.

I guess what I'm looking for is a "New email" button beside

the “Reply” and “Comment” buttons. It would behave like “comment”,
but would allow me to specify the “To:” address of the outgoing mail.

Is there a way to do this already?  I'm using RT 3.4.5, btw.
