choice of From item when replying

Reported by Thibaud | June 14th, 2011 @ 10:02 PM

  • What happened:

I received an e-mail whose To field is: a@b.c.
I clicked on reply and the From field was: w@x.y.z.

  • What could explain that:

I have a rule on a@b.c mailbox that automatically forward e-mails to w@x.y.z
I also receive e-mails at various e-mails based on the pattern *@x.y.z.

  • Problem:

In this case, I would prefer my address stays a@b.c for the destinatory. Forwarding to w@x.y.z is my messy cooking :)
However, If I receive an e-mail whose To field is w@x.y.z, I would like the reply to be sent From w@x.y.z.

  • What I tried:

I clicked on Edit source to place a@b.c as the first e-mail address, thinking it could give it a kind of priority, but it did not work as I expected.

Do you think MailMate could better handling this case?

    I realize you did not acknowledge this ticket. Is it not clear enough or do you need some more informations?

    No, I was just taking a lot of time to think about this :-)

    For some reason delivery addresses have precedence over recipient addresses. I don't think this was on purpose, but there may have been some reason I forgot. Nevertheless, I've switched them and also introduced a debugging variable to make it a bit easier to see how the address is deduced.

    defaults write com.freron.MailMate MmDebugDerivedIdentity -bool YES

    There is a cutting edge version now (with this change only). Let me know how it works for you.
