      Description

      The messaging drop down works fine when you have messages, but there is no way to start a new conversation with someone.

      I suggest either of these in the dropdown:

      a) A "Show all messages" link somewhere above or below the recent messages list.

      b) A "Send a new message..." link at the top of the recent messages list, which goes direct to the Contacts tab in the main messaging interface.
