Bug Description

Binary package hint: evolution

I have the following setup:

 - account1 (the only one I get email from, as others forward here)
 - account2 (the one marked as default, only configured to send email)

Because of that I'm always reading email from account1.

When I compose a new email (by hitting the New button), evolution pops up the
composer with the account1 email address instead of account2's one as I'd
expect (given that it's my default one).

If I'm reading stuff from the "On this computer" account, then evolution uses
the correct (default) account when composing a new email.

I'd expect that the default account would always be the one used when composing
a new message, or else there's no difference between the default and the
