From address when replying to messages

There is now an item in the Options -> Account Preferences screen for you to select how the default From address is filled in when you reply to a message. The new option is in the Compose section of the screen and is called ‘From when Replying’.

If you select ‘Best personality’, then the From address of the new message will be the personality which seemed most appropriate, judging from the headers of the original message. If none seem appropriate, then your default personality will be used.

If you select ‘Always original’ then the From address of the new message will be the address that the original message used to reach you, even if it does not match any of your personalities.

Changing backup email address now requires password

To avoid a security hole, if you want to change your backup email address on the Options -> Account Preferences screen, you now have to enter your existing password. This stops the hole where if a user accidentally left a session open on a public computer, someone could change the backup email address and then request a lost password to be sent to that address.

FastCheck (SOAP) logins now show in login log & count as a login

I’ve recently fixed a bug where logins from FastCheck users not using the IMAP mode were not being registered. This meant that they didn’t appear in the Login Log, and also they didn’t count as “activity”, so they didn’t stop the account being closed for inactivity! Both of these are now fixed.
