"Edit as New" identity selection

Reported by: zax9srxqz3@… Owned by: rene
Version: 0.6.5 Keywords:


I have an email-based procedure that involves me "editing as new" an email that was sent to me and sending it to a different address, with the original sender's email address remaining in "From". I cannot use Mail Redirect because I have to change the actual To: address.

Sometimes when I do the "Edit as New", VI puts my address in the From field, and sometimes it puts the original sender's there. I can't figure out why. I want the former.

"edit as new" should intentionally use the original senders name and edit the mail exactly as you saved it. Hard to say when this get changed in the way you like it to behave. Please activate the debug output (last Tab of preferences) and reproduce the case when you got the right sender. You should see something like this:

## vI_smartIdentity: msgComposeType = 10
## vI_smartIdentity: Draft()

and the following steps will tell you what's going on. Please post the output (after replacing any confidential information) and I will see which option might help you.

One general change is to disable Smart-Draft at all - just change this in the first Tab of the Preferences dialog and check if this conflicts with you other use-cases.

Nice regards, Rene
