This sounds like a great idea — except that I almost invariably have a

I notice that the same behavior can be invoked via a contextual menu
click on the list name/address when looking at a message already
addressed to the list (e.g., `MailMate Users` and
`<mailmate at lists.freron.com>`) — perhaps that is sufficient?

I notice that the `From:` address is actually *not* being correctly
derived for me, at least, in the case of this very e-mail list. It’s
present and very clear as the only `X-Delivered-To:` header, but a
different address is being automatically set as my `From:` address in
this message that I’m typing now. My subscription address (which is
also the `X-Delivered-To:` address) is, as with you, not in the account
settings — and since MailMate isn’t picking it up, I need to enter
it by hand.
