temporarily making it the default.)

(BTW, I see no visual indication in the account list of which is the

The reason it copies the default transport config is just for this very
reason, so people could create null accounts and only change the
identity page.

Almost! ;-) But at least now I can pick a menu item and click two
buttons ("Default", then "Add"), and then switch the receive mode to

Of course, the presence of this machinery is not obvious.

One other thing, sorta related: Every time I reply to a mailing list, I
have to do a "view all headers" to remember which account I used to
subscribe to that list, because Evo always fills in the default account.
How about making Evo smarter about picking which account to use to reply
from? If there's no matching account address in one of the recipient
fields of the original message, use the information from
X-Evolution-Source. Don't just pick the default account unless there's
not enough information to do something more intelligent.
