Q about default account setting

I have accounts which I use normally, to receive and reply.
Then I have accounts where I receive lot of mail but don’t use to reply much to them.
So those acconts are usually active and when I create new mail I have to be careful not to send it from a wrong account…

I would like to have an option that active accounts are NOT chosen as a sender unless I choose them from the drop down list on new messange window.

In my opinion, default account is not functioning like it should be.

The account that will be used for sending emails will be the account that is highlighted in the folder pane.  For example, if you the folder highlighted is “user@user.com” the sender will be “user@user.com”.  The default sender email comes into play in the Smart (unified) folders.  If any of those folders are highlighted, the default email will be used to send.
