Force Mail to allow account choice at send time
Authored by: biscuit on Jun 07, '05 11:43:31AM

Great hint indeed. However, I have a slight problem getting it to work as described. I can get the account set up and shown in the list as red, but sending test messages actually works with this account. It uses my primary account (a gmail account) but with the name 'Select Account'. I've tried setting the outgoing mail server to other servers I use or 'None' but it doesn't work.

I don't know if it's the httpmail plugin messing things up maybe? Or is it because the gmail account uses authentication so I can always send with that one perhaps?

I have the same problem as it tries to send with my .mac account.

You may have to set up a bogus smtp server as well. Haven't tried the hint, but the list is populated by your Outgoing Mail Servers list, if I am not mistaken.
