Yes, indeed I have always set “Automatically select best account” and that seems to work most of the time. Of course, Mail.app doesn’t have a reply-to-list feature so it almost never selects the right address for replies to mailing lists, but I’ve learned to deal with that. The reason is that a proper reply to a mailing list should not CC the original author, otherwise they’d get duplicates. So it can’t know that I’m subscribed to List A with barry@A.com and List B with barry@B.com. In Claws, I have a small extension (written in Python) that essentially regex matches the To header to select the correct From header from a predefined criteria.
The other problem is that I have two keys associated with most of my email addresses. My older 1024 bit DSA key, and my newer 4096 RSA key. These days I’m always using the latter, but sometimes the former gets chosen (and both always show up in the From pulldown, which just clutters things up). I’d like to hide the 1024 bit keys if possible.
Hi Steve, I’ve downloaded and installed the latest nightly. Is there a changelog available? Or, can you describe how the nightly addresses my second issue?
So I think “reply-to-list” might indeed be an Apple request, but the ability to select a reply address based on the headers (e.g. List-ID, From, or CC) might be a GPGMail feature ask, since reply-to-list would only select the To: header, not the From: header.
Thanks Steve, I see what you're saying about the From field.
While readingg the release notes (thanks for that link!) I noticed an item
about GPGTools and Mail ActOn working together again. You know, I'd totally
forgotten about Mail ActOn which I used to use. I'm thinking that maybe
it'll handle that part of the job. Anyway I'm going to try it out, so it's
great to know that the two products work well together.
