Hi and thanks for this great CLI tool !
I would like to have several identities on the same account to choose which alias address to use in From field, and eventually a different signature (not the most important in fact).
I see a parameter aliases in config but I don't understand how it works and if it could do what I'm looking for.
I have found a workaround:
- when composing the mail content, hit Ctrl+X
- ":next-field" to switch to the From: field
- modify From content
- Hit tab to change field again
- the new From value is used to send email
A select list in From field when aliases are defined in config would be great !
i wanted this too, so i wrote this patch: https://lists.sr.ht/~sircmpwn/aerc/patches/25289
i have a section like the following in my
<C-f> = :choose \ -o l liz 'header -f From "Elizabeth Hollyburn" \<firstname.lastname@example.org\>' \ -o g git 'header -f From "Elizabeth Hollyburn" \<email@example.com\>' \ -o w work 'header -f From "Elizabeth Hollyburn" \<firstname.lastname@example.org\>' \ <Enter>
~hollyburn you suggestion looks very nice! Would love for this to be implemented, really keen to have a simple way to use multiple aliases!
