Pine 4.21 (And a few before this) have the option of defining
"Roles."  Based on normal sorts of filter criteria, (From, To, Subject and
Body) contents, Pine can make replies have different signatures, reply-to
addresses, from addresses, and saving behavior.  You can also choose a
role during a normalk compose.  I think this is exactly what you want,
except that it is pine, not mutt.
