Hi All,

Brad got it right. A double click to open or single click if already
open (ie. select or highlight), on a MH folder optionally makes the
associated (if there is one) account become the current account. 
This must be a user selectable option since, as Paul noted, some users
may have configured the MH folders for multiple or null accounts. I
treat all MH folders as top level accounts, with distinct servers, email
addresses, sig files, etc.

The setup:
default account: snapdrgn
current account: kabuki
current MH box: rattlebrain (where i am looking)

The problem:
I have not switched the account to rattlebrain, but i am replying to a
message in the rattlebrain account. The automatic "From:" address in
this reply is kabuki at ...

I am assuming this means adding a check box to the folder property
page, and an event handler to deal with selecting the folder which
checks to see if the box is checked and there is an associated email 
address. No address then nop or use default.

Nice to see there is such a quick response!
