Re: [Evolution] Multiple Mail Accounts Question.

Dunno about outlook (don't have windows) but mozilla does not handle
this. It by default will use the mail address associated with the
account on which the mail came in. Evo already wins here as it tries to
guess a bit what email address you want. 

Big difference here is that in mozilla you cannot have an empty account
as in evo.

This (in my opinion) would get out of hand a bit if evo did this too.

This is simply starting to get gross. How does Mozilla/Outlook handle
this? or do they not handle it either?

It would be nice if there were a way to make the account selection work
with mailing lists too.

I've lately run into some problems because my isp uses one or more
realtime black hole lists to block incoming e-mails. It's frustrating
because my locally installed SpamAssassin seems to find a lot of spam
which gets by them anyway, and it's caused me problems with yahoo
groups, and with some other support mailing lists. So I've set up
another mail identity which goes directly to my own mail server in my
domain. However, if the mailing list doesn't include my address in
broadcast mail, then I still default to my isp email address when I
reply to the list, and if the list is set to subscriber only, then the
mail bounces unless I remember to select the other account.

Is it or would it be possible to have Evolution select a from address
based on another address appearing in header fields such as
Mailing-List, From: CC: etc.

it picks the From address based on the recipient list of the message. So
if one of your email addresses is in the To/Cc headers, it will choose
that account.

It also checks the Evolution-Source header, if that is set it chooses
that account.

failing the above 2 (can't remember which order they were applied in),
it chooses the default account.

How does Evolution choose which address to send mail from when you have
more than one account? I have been getting icreasingly frustrated with
Evolution 1.2.4 because I have two accounts, one which is disabled
because I only use it to send mail from and the other which holds all of
my mail. Whenver I compose a message it seems to pick a from address
randomly from the listing. There is no consistency that I can find? Is
there a way I can force it to always pick one address instead of
randomly selecting one.
