So how do I solve my situation then? ;-)

I have multiple E-mail accounts that I use for sending. But only a few
real 'mailboxes' for receiving. Some of the E-mail accounts are aliases
to others.

Example: My gnome e-mail address isn't a real e-mail address with a
mailbox attached. It gets delivered to another E-mail address which I
also use. Yet, I'd like to send using my gnome e-mail address in the
>From header.
