This should go in. With spam filters and multiple accounts from multiple
locations, here's a scenario:
Dialed up to isp.net, but also have an email account from isp2.com. The
first has relay rulesets which do not permit me to send out with a return
address of isp2.com, so I need to use isp2.com's mail servers.
Assigning different mail servers to different identities would make sense.
I have this situation myself, as I have my work (isp.net) account and my
own personal colocated server at work (isp2.com) with multiple accounts on
