[neomutt-users] Account switching (IMAP): some account-specifics persist on switch.

I've recently switched (back) to Neomutt from my webmail client.

I've got everything setup, quite happy with it thus far, if it wasn't for one
issue that persists.

Basically, I have account-specific configurations, and use `account-hook` in
`$XDG_CONFIG_DIR/neomutt/neomuttrc` to activate these settings.

However, it seems that when I switch from say, the Git account, to my
personal account, certain settings persist, where, for example, the Drafts
folder will still be set to the Git account's Drafts folder, so when I
draft an email from the *Personal* account, it's saved in the Git's
account. Or vice versa.

I've sanitised my config, and put it into a GitHub repository for review[0].

Am I missing something?

Thank you.
