Re: [Evolution] Determining the account used for sending mail

Well, I have 5 accounts configured right now, all POP3.  They are from
various hosts.

The default account is kempa picassofish com 

kempa picassofish com goes to  This is a Linux box on
the net, has a sendmail server running on it.  I connect via POP3 from
evolution and download my mail.

kempa kwic com goes to  KWIC is my ISP.  They have a
bunch of FreeBSD boxen and one of them is running sendmail.  I, again,
connect via POP3 to their mail server and download my mail.

I then have a whole bunch of Evolution filters (SPAM stuff, folder
routing, etc) but I don't think they play into this at all.  No
procmail, no other stuff in between.

Now, replying to "normal" messages seems to work well - the correct
account is probed from (presumably) X-Evolution-Source: but replying to
mailing lists (any list, I'm on several) selects the default account
(kempa picassofish com) not the one specified in the X-Evo-source

So, to summarize, they both travel to me via sendmail and POP3.  They
"merge", as far as I know, only in the sense that they are both stored
on the same hard disk.

Hmm... Interesting.  I clicked reply to the message you sent to the
list.  It selected the right account.  I'm guessing this is because I
appear as a recipient?

Need more detail. How many accounts of what types do you have

If I send mail to kempa picassofish com, what route does it travel, and
likewise for kempa kwic com  (Do the two get merged before or after
evolution gets involved, etc)

The old 1.0.x way doesn't work when replying to lists.  Eg. I have two
accounts (I have a lot more than that, but that's not the point) one is
kempa picassofish com and one is kempa kwic com   I am subscribed to
this list via kempa kwic com   When I clicked reply just now, Evolution
selected my default account (kempa picassofish com) instead of the one
in the X-Evolution-Source: header (kempa kwic com).  This is annoying as
hell because if I don't change the from address, my mail is silently
dropped by the list server since my address isn't subscribed. 
Ironically enough, this happened when I was talking to Jeff about the
fact that the autodetection was broken.

Other than that, I have no complaint with the way 1.0.x works, so if
that bug could be fixed...  Jeff assures me that it works in 1.1.x, I
haven't been brave enough to start using the dev-snaps yet...
