Bug#526515: kmail: Subfolder does not inherit default sender identity from parent (regression)

Package: kmail
Version: 4:4.2.2-1
Severity: normal

Prior to the 4.2.2 update, if 'use default identity' was ticked in a subfolder,
the sender identity of the parent folder was used. This parent folder
sender identity could then be set to a non-default identity to enable that
identity to be conveniently used across a set of related subfolders.

This no longer works. If set to use the default sender identity,
subfolders only use the global default identity, and ignore the
parent folder identity. I really hope this is not intentional.

Tested on IMAP and dIMAP.
