I have also found this bug in KMail 5.1.3.

If I send myself emails from any one of my identities to any one of my other
identities, and then try to reply to those emails, the default is to reply to

I found it difficult to find this bug report, because the title is not very
descriptive, so I am taking the liberty of changing the title to make it a bit
more searchable.
