It's complex! But I did just manage to deliberately trigger it.
I opened a composer window from the inbox of a Gmail account, and
entered as the recipient someone I had most recently written to from a
non-Gmail account. As soon as I hit tab to move to the next header
field, MailMate correctly changed both the sending identity and the BCC
address from the Gmail one to the non-Gmail one.
I hit tab a couple of times to move the cursor into the message body.
Then I changed the sending identity back to the Gmail account. The BCC
address did not change. This has been fully reproducible across the
dozens of times I've tested it, including changing the sending identity
to two different Gmail accounts. (It may be the *only* case that has
been fully reproducible so far; and there are so many variables that I
still wouldn't put my life on its being 100% perfectly consistent...)
Tabbing only as far as the subject line before changing the sending
identity sometimes, but not always, meant that the BCC address did not
change to match the new sending identity.
If I clicked to put the cursor into the message body (rather than
tabbing) and then changed the sending identity, the BCC address usually
correctly changed, but sometimes didn't.
Starting again in the inbox of a Gmail account, I composed a message to
a recipient to whom I've most recently written from that same account.
When I tabbed into the message body and then changed the sending
identity to either a different Gmail account or to the non-Gmail
account, the BCC address did correctly change. I haven't tested this
variation as many times, though.
Starting in the inbox of the non-Gmail account, I opened a composer
window and entered as the recipient someone to whom I had most recently
written from a Gmail account. As soon as I hit tab to move to the next
header field, MailMate correctly changed both the sending identity and
the BCC address from the non-Gmail one to the Gmail one. I tabbed into
the message body and then changed the sending identity, and the BCC
address failed to change to match it. However, if I tabbed only as far
as the subject line, and then changed the sending identity, the BCC
address did change to match; and if I then tabbed from there into the
message body and changed the sending identity again, the BCC address
again changed to match. Moreover, I just tried to reproduce this, and
this time when I tabbed only as far as the subject line and then changed
the sending identity, the BCC address did *not* change to match it.
You can see how complex this is! Also I have no idea whether the fact
that I keep coming back to this composer window to add updates, between
all the opening of other composer windows and changing of sending
identities, is affecting anything.
So, uh, I hope this helps narrow the problem down?
