ok i'll try to figure this out.

Here's a new problem:

I moved mails between the POP and the IMAP account. Now there's one mail in IMAP, when i reply to, it always puts the reply into the POP mailbox Queue (but i disabled POP accounts and passwords already).

Maybe that mail i was responding to was originally received by POP, dunno (can i see any info about this in the headers?).

Another thing is, the reply has a Message-ID. But i can't see the "Generate Message ID" config parameter in IMAP.

I tried configuring default account in folder prefs but still is doing this.

I finally configured the Queue folder in the account prefs and that's works. But i don't understand why this was happening, and why i needed to configure this.


I just start to wonder why there is only one (MH) toplevel mailbox (with one Queue, one Sent etc.) for all my different POP accounts. I mean, this is what i want since i used filters to move stuff into specific custom folders. Shouldn't it rather be one set of default folders for each account, at account creation time ?  Just can't remember how i ended up there (since i created this stuff years ago) - did i explicitly configure / rename this somehow ? Can somebody pls poke into my brain :D
