User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1.3) Gecko/20090909 Fedora/3.5.3-1.fc11 Firefox/3.5.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US; rv:1.9.1.4pre) Gecko/20091014 Fedora/3.0-2.8.b4.fc11 Lightning/1.0pre Thunderbird/3.0b4

On Fedora 11, Thunderbird 3.0b4 seems to always send mail from the default account, even after I made sure the correct secondary account was set in the compose message window. The message gets sent successfully, but the message gets sent from the default account instead of the secondary account.

This seems to apply to both new messages and replies.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Set up two different email accounts in Thunderbird.
2.Compose a new message with the second account as the sending address, and address it to the first account.
3.Send the message then check the Sent Messages to see which account it was sent through.
Actual Results:  
The message will be sent from the primary/default account instead of the selected secondary account.

Expected Results:  
The message should be sent from the account selected in the compose window at all times.
This WFM. 

Anything in the Tools -> Error console ?

How do your accounts look in prefs.js ?

Either chalk this up to user error or investigate the account settings; account #2 was set for smtp server #1 instead of smtp server #2 despite my strong recollection that I had configured account #2 to use smtp server #2. Either I didn't after all (possible), or the setting didn't get saved (also possible).
