Didn't realize this had been discussed in the past (maybe before my days
on this list). Regardless, I would personally have no problem with the
"old way" of determining the account if Evo 1.0.8 (SuSE 7.3 build for
me) actually figured out the account to send mail from if my email isn't
in the To: or Cc: fields. However, right now the behavior for me is to
use the default account if it isn't found there, when it seems it should
then check the X-Evolution-Source header. Just my 2 cents.

I am interested to know what "the old way" is?  If you would, explain a
scenario where the 1.1.x way behaves in an undesirable manner?

AFAIK: in 1.0, first are checked the 'To:' and 'Cc:' fields, then the
'X-Evo-Source'. Different email addresses may point to the same physical
mailbox and be still differentiated as long as you have an account
without mailbox defined on it.

So, I have alessio albourne com as my main address, but an alias
alessio village albourne com for my project: this just redirects to the
main mailbox. I would like to reply to these messages with my
alessio village albourne com account (including custom signature and
other details), which I created without an actual POP mailbox, since
there is not.

1.0 does this just fine because it looks to the 'To:' header. I believe
1.1 won't because the 'X-Evo-Source' is linked to the main
'alessio albourne com'. In fact "virtual" accounts become half useless
and lose much of their power.

Ofcourse, I may just have misunderstood the change, but there was quite
a discussion in the previous weeks, see
(the thread is acutally split between July and August).
