Bug Description

When you right click a message in an account's folders, then select "Edit as New Message", the composer always opens with the default email address rather than the address associated with the original message's account.

Rationale is as follows: I have multiple email accounts, each configured in Evolution to be able to send and receive mail, use different signatures, etc:

1) Work account
2) Personal account

Replying to personal emails and composing new messages with an old one as a template, I want to make sure my personal email address, rather than my work email address and preferences, are used.
