Description Aldoo 2012-06-15 09:38:27 UTC
It seems kmail composer fails to retrieve the identity with which a saved draft was being edited with and instead fails back to default identity.

This behavior has an embarrassing consequence: you end up sending messages with the wrong identity without noticing it, then the wrong people start answering you on an email address they should not have known about.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Configure your kmail to have several identities.
2. start editing a message
3. change identity for this message to something else than default
4. close it and save it to drafts
5. go to your draft folder and re-open the message saved in 4
Actual Results:  
The identity field of the reopened message switched back to default identity.

Expected Results:  
The message, including all its metadata, should be identical to when it was saved.

This bug is not specific to saving to drafts: when you fail to send a message and it is saved to outbox, identity will also be lost when you reopen the message.
