Hi Gene!

I do it this way:
- create a new account for "Sending", (e.g. "outgoing")
- create a new identidy, let'c call it "test"
- edit properties of this identidy ("test"): 
	"Modify ...", 
	3rd tab "Advanced", 
	check the checkmark in the last line "Special transport", 
	select the former created account for sending (e.g. "outgoing")
Now your account uses the "outgoing" for sending.

An other thing I usally do is assigning a mail account to the folder, so it ist' automaticly chosen when I hit new mail or reply:
- right clock on the doomed folder
- "Poperties"
- "Sender Identidy" - select your identidy (e.g. "test")
