Build:
2002091014

Steps:
1) Make sure you have multiple accounts.
2) Right click one of your Sent/Templates/Drafts thats from an account other
than the first mail account you added.
3) Select "Edit as new".

Result:
The "From" pulldown at the top of the compose window shows the name/address of
the FIRST account that was created.

Expected:
The "From" pulldown should display the same From address/name (if it matches a
local account) of the message you are editing.

This seems to only apply to messages in the "Local Folders" group, messages in
folders under an account seem to work as expected.

Fused: I just tried to duplicate this bug with 1.3 and 1.4b and was unable to.  
Are you still seeing this problem?

No, I am no longer seeing this with 1.4b, as with bug 173002 an enhancement or
bugfix from another bug I was reading seems to have been the solution.

Previously the message did not store any information about the account it was
created with, so if it was in the Local Folders group, it had no way of
determining which account created it. Which seemingly caused the behavious seen
in these two bugs I filed.

Marking INVALID.
