Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 237117
Evo always uses first SMTP server in label
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:02 EST
Description of problem:
When having several accounts, Evolution always appears to use the first defined
(or primary?) account. The first account I have defined has outgoing server
'smtp.tg07.gathering.org', but I never use that one (since TG07 is an event and
long ago closed). However, always when sending e-mail, it lies and says it's
using smtp.tg07.gathering.org, whilst actually using the server I've chosen!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Define a primary/first account. Set outgoing SMTP server.
2. Define a new account, set another outgoing SMTP server.
3. Send an e-mail, choose account no 2. See, Evolution says it's using the first
SMTP server. Lies, lies!
Mail sends OK, just cosmetic.
It should show the actual SMTP server :-)

Evolution shows the SMTP server of your default account, not necessarily the
account that you're sending email from (I guess since you could have messages in
the Outboxes of several accounts at once). You can change your default account
in the "Evolution Preferences" dialog (Edit -> Preferences).
Whether the UI should be altered in some way is a question for the upstream
maintainers to address. If you still feel it's an issue, I suggest filing a bug
report at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/ and provide some suggestions on how you
think the "Send & Receive Mail" dialog could be improved.
