How? you already have the accounts created, if we changed it you would
just have to create it again and it wouldn't have solved a thing.

Your assumption is that I've created all the accounts I'll ever want. In
fact, I've avoided using good reply addresses because it's so painful to
make a dummy account just to hold one piece of information, the
alternate alias I want replies to come back to.

Also - have you given any thought to how this would be presented to the
user in the composer? I doubt it.

Your telepathy isn't working very well. I've been giving a great deal of
thought to how it should work.

How about this: I should be able to copy an existing account and then
edit the copy. And in case you're having trouble figuring out how that's
supposed to work, you put a Copy button after the Edit button in the
account list page, open an account edit dialog with the information from
the copied account and the name blank.
