Branch build 2001-10-08-05: WinMe Branch build 2001-10-09-04: Linux RH 7.1 Branch build 2001-10-09-03: Mac 9.1 As reported by Bob Lord and mentioned in bug # 79053. Overview: "I found another case where a mail compose window does not correctly inherit the mail account selected in the mail window. The case is in mailto: links." Steps to reproduce: 1. Open a profile with multiple Mail accounts (i.e. Home account, Work account) 2. Select the Work account 3. Change focus to a window with a mailto: URL (like this bug :-) ) Actual Results: The new message/compose window has the Home account's email address in the From field. Expected Results: It should have the Work account in the From field.

Bug 123244 seems to be the opposite of this one, except for that 123244 is about pressing Ctrl+M while this one is about clicking a mailto: link. I guess one of them has to be WONTFIXed, but which one?
Defaulting "From:" to a different email account is particularly surprising when the mailto "link" is an email address in a MESSAGE, either in the headers pane of the message or in the body of the message. At least when the link is from a message being viewed in MailNews, it should use the current selected account as the "From:". To Reproduce: 1. Select a non-default email account in MailNews 2. View an email message 3. Click on an email address in the message (headers or body) to compose new mail Expected Result: Compose window From: field defaults to *current* account Actual result: Compose window From: field defaults to *default* account (Build 2002020406 0.9.8 on w2k)

Marking nsbeta1. After selecting a message and selecting a mailto link from the header or body of the message, the "From" field should use the currently selected account to determine the "From" field instead of the default account.

marking invalid. this is the desired behavior. #79053 has been backed out. see #99363.

Why no explanation of why this is the "desired behavior" vs. an RFE?
