What I'm doing is this:

I create an account and a folder for each username.
The 'From' address is entered into Configuration > Edit accounts >

I set the filter so that each message is sent to the folder where it

You can set a folder to use the right account, and hence, to use the
right 'From'-address when replying from within a folder:
right-click on folder > Properties > tab 'Compose' > set account.

But there is a second method, where a separate folder for each account
is not needed. When replying, in the Compose window, next to 'From' you
can change the used account, and hence, the 'From'-address.
