I really don't understand what you mean here. When I send an email with 
Mailmate, it grabs the SMTP server from my old Tuffmail account, even if 
it's offline. But all my mail is coming to my Fastmail account. What 
would be wrong with putting my Fastmail SMTP server in my Tuffmail 
account setup? I never CHOOSE an act to send from. I just tell Mailmate 
to do a New Message.
