Interesting point ...
When checking various folders settings, I can (and have in some cases) specified which identity to 
use. In some/most of them the setting is default identity, but the greyed out box didn't specify my 
default identity, but the alphabatically first one.
While it makes sense to use the specified identity for a folder when replying, I don't think it's 
handy for creating new emails, especially when creating a new email from the icon in the system 
tray. That way I have to check which folder has the focus each time I want to write a new message.

None-the-less, thanks for bringing it to my attention.
