Yes--the code is

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
