VI chooses wrong virtual identity

Description

Hello Rene -

This is with v0.5.11 actually. Sometimes VI seems to choose the originator of an email as the virtual identity to send from. I almost always catch it, but once in a while I do not, and it can get a bit tricky then ...

For example, I may have an incoming email from george@…. When I go to reply to george, the From: box has george@… in it, and the To: box is empty. I haven't caught the specifics of when that happens until just now.

I had a recent email that exim4 had not tagged correctly. I fixed the exim4 config, then redirected the email to myself so it would process through exim4 again to be tagged. That worked fine.

But now if I reply to that redirected email, it comes up with the sender's address in the From: box, and the To: is empty.

Here are the sample sanitized headers from the original email, to which reply works fine.

From george@gmail.com Tue Nov 10 12:57:36 2009
Return-path: <george@gmail.com>
Envelope-to: dean@somedomain.com
Received: from mail-bw0-f212.google.com ([209.85.218.212])
	by galah.somedomain.com with esmtp (Exim 4.63)
	(envelope-from <george@gmail.com>)
	id 1N7uyA-0004xI-Vz
	for dean@somedomain.com; Tue, 10 Nov 2009 12:57:36 -0500

Subject: Testing
From: George <george@gmail.com>
To: Dean <dean@somedomain.com>

And here are the headers from the redirected email, which does not get handled correctly. I resent it to deano-george

To: Dean <dean@somedomain.com>

Doing a reply to this redirected email results in the From: box having George <george@…> in it, and the To: box being empty.

Any ideas ?

Thanks -

D.

Hi D.

can you please activate the debug-log (last Tab in preferences) to check what's going on? If you are goign to post the debug log (which is really helpful for further investigation) please think of replacing email addresses before posting.

It feels like the extension assumes in the second case that you are trying to edit a draft instead of replying to a message. This will be related to bug #161 and to bug #124, but has to be checked.

Nice regards, Rene
