As I stated in the OP, in the Win32 version the From is not coming from
the To of the email being forwarded, but always from the top email
address in my Sylpheed accounts, i.e., Config --> Edit Accounts. It's
the same one you've been seeing in my posts and your replies sent
directly to me. It's also the default. The ones that ought to show much
of the time, i.e., the addresses senders to me have used, are in the
Edit Accounts list; that's how I'm able to receive them in the first
place (!). Each time, I have to remember to use the From drop-down and
change the address I'm sending from. I've forgotten on occasion and
it's cost me some trouble. I hope that's clear.

It looks like there are some inconsistencies between the Win32 version
and the other(s). That's what I'm trying to call to Hiro's attention as
my wish list.
