Yep.  Not sure if there is a

see why not.  Sites that want to enforce a specific

When using nmh, I occassionally edit the From: in my
editor (Vim) to reflect different identities I'm known
as, so any default user setting would basically set
what is initially inserted into the draft message before
the editor is launched.

Now, if nmh had the ability to preset the From: based
on which identity I received the message under...  Definitely
a feature I like about Gmail since there are 3 identities
I work under on a daily basis.

I currently deal with the issue by having variant components
files and then shell aliases for comp and repl to use
which one I desire at the time.  But this requires I know
which identity to use beforehand (for repl) vs having repl
automatically doing it for me.
