            Bug ID: 435939
           Summary: Default sender identity of IMAP folder is ignored and
                    does not persist
           Product: kmail2
           Version: 5.16.3
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: folders
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: esw80754 at cuoly.com
  Target Milestone: ---

When I set a certain default identity for an IMAP resource, that identity is
not used for the IMAP folders and does not persist.

1. Set the default identity of an IMAP resource to X.
2. Go to the folder settings of any folder within that IMAP and make sure that
the box is ticked to use the default identity.
3. Compose a new email.
4. Manually set the folder identity to X and restart KMail.

The new email uses identity X. Additionally, the IMAP and folder identity
settings persist after restarting KMail.

The global standard identity is used. Additionally, the settings do not persist
but revert to the global default. This only happens for some identities. It is
serious because it means that composing a new email from within an IMAP folder
can accidentally use the wrong identity if the user is not careful and
therefore expose sensitive addresses.

Qt Version: 5.15.2


Possible duplicate of https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=401936 but I
observed additional issues (the fact that the default identity of the IMAP
resource is ignored) and cannot verify that it is indeed the same.
