I think its horrible as it allows people to spoof, spam and do bad things... Make From field in the composer read only https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=373313 Me personally I would never make software or change it to allow people to make such a mistake. Others felt differently. I stopped using Kmail2. I use Claws-mail now, but it also has editable from field.... :( Email clients should only allow email address that are in configured accounts. But that is my opinion. Others seem to feel differently. I cannot see any good reasons for such really. -- William L. Thomson Jr.
