You can always reply in-line, and trim the unneeded parts. :)

What does the "To" of the _original_ message look like?

I mean, sylpheed should already select automatically the "From" of the
forwarded message starting from the "To" of the original message, if
the original "To" is a configured account.

However that does not work when the "To" is not in the account list like
for example message received via a mailing list. And this behavior
makes sense IMHO.

In that case maybe a workaround is to override the Account using Folder

Ah, I never used Sylpheed on Windows, sorry. maybe someone else can
help about that.
