If you go back to probably even last week or the week before in the
archives for this list, you'll find numerous messages complaining about
1.0.x "find my account from this message" behavior. In fact, every week
there are lots of complaints. All of them wanted it the way it is now.
You're actually the first person that wants it the old way :-)

Actually, Jeff, I believe I brought this up right about the time that
1.1.x started existing (and I've mentioned it several times since).  I
was told then that "nothing in that code has changed".

But anyhow..........

I said in a reply to someone a month ago, or so.  The 1.1 behavior is
somewhat more beneficial to those who have many IMAP accounts, the 1.0
behavior was more beneficial to those who have lots of aliases going to
one account.  But I'm thinking that doesn't make sence.

If you have many IMAP accounts, wouldn't the account be in the recipient
list?  And if not, wouldn't falling back to X-Evolution-Source get the
IMAP account?

Seems to me that the old way worked in both situations, the new way
works only in one, since X-Evolution-Source should always be set.

I always thought that most of the threads on "set my from automatically"
were on mail list stuff, where you aren't in the recipient list anyway. 
Wouldn't the old way (if it truly used X-Evolution-Source as a
fall-back) still find the IMAP account?

BTW.  The "forward" logic still works the old way.
