1. Does neomutt have the function that when composing messages, asking From: section?
Currently, it only asks To: or recipient adress and Subject: and then go to editor.
How to make it also ask for From: or sender address?
This is very useful for multiple accounts or multiple identities if people set custom headers based on each email account or identity eg, From: address with hooks.
As mail flow indicates, the headers or set_hdr in neomutt is set before getting into editor. So the custom header in hooks will not work if the hook does not know From: address from the beginning before getting into the editor.
Once getting into editor and change From: address, the custom header settings in send-hook will not work.
This is especially true in composing new messages.
In replying messages, it may work because neomutt already know the From: address before getting into editor.
The best is neomutt would list all the From or email address that I can choose from since the beginning.
2. In PGP encrption also, neomutt seems to always use default key or oldest key as encrypt_self or From: encryption key.
How to disable such bug and let user to choose arbitrary key from system key ring as enrypt_to_self or From encrption key?
Currently, for multiple account settings, it only allows to choose To: recipient pgp key, but sender's key is not allowed to choose and automatically use default.
I tried to use send-hook -f to solve the problems, but it seems as long as neomutt does not ask for From: address from the beginning, it does not work in composing new messages.
