Bug ID: 411204
Summary: With two email accounts, SPF sees emails as being from
the 'Set as Default' account, leading to
authentication/DMARC problems when sending from other
Platform: Neon Packages
Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
Reporter: p.wibberley at btinternet.com
Target Milestone: ---
If there are two email accounts, Sending Policy Framework seems to think emails
are sent always from the 'Set as Default' account, leading to
authentication/DMARC problems when sending from other account.
STEPS TO REPRODUCE
1.Under Accounts.Sending, set up two SMTP Sending Accounts with different ISPs
2.One of the accounts will be 'Set as Default'
3.Send a message to a Gmail account with each Account.
4. Under Account.Sending swap 'Set as Default' to the other account.
The email from the Sending Account which is 'Set as Default' will be
delivered; the email from the other account will fail on DMARC policies.
When the 'Set as Default' is swapped to the other account, the account from
which the email is successfully delivered and the account from which the email
is rejected will swap over.
Emails from both accounts should be sent and not rejected.

A record in a "mail not deliverered message" was:
"Received-SPF: softfail (transitioning domain of sa-prd-fep-014.btinternet.com
does not designate 220.127.116.11 as permitted sender)".
Here, 18.104.22.168 is an IP address belonging to 1&1, which was the service
provider for the email account which was 'Set as Default'.
I am not sure whether this is a duplicate of Bug 393185, which is marked as
"Resolved Not a Bug". If so, it is not clear why this is not a bug, as it
makes the account other than the default account almost unusable for sending
