Yes--the code is

    /* Set up the default identity */
        /* Get the identity from the To: field of the original  
message */

As it stands, the mailbox identity takes precedence.  I agree,  
there's an issue here: if the mailbox has an associated identity  
and a different identity would be inferred from the message we're  
replying to, which takes precedence?  The current choice works  
for me: I sometimes get work-related mail sent to a personal  
address, but I file it in a work-related folder, so it gets the  
appropriate identity when I reply.  But if you don't organize  
your mailboxes that way, the other choice might be better.

I guess it *could* be a user pref--though explaining precisely  
what pref the user is specifying would be challenging!

That's also being discussed in another current thread (Handling  
of multiple identities with balsa,   
Several issues would have to be resolved: the UI, storing the  
info, when to trigger, ...

Sounds good!
