TB 52.4.0 on Windows 8.1 (64 bit). Configuration top to bottom is:

email account Mark (IMAP)
Local Folders
Usenet account

When replying to email messages in local folders (under Local Folders) the sending account is often selected to be the Usenet account. Since the email address and signature are the same I sometimes don't notice until after I've sent the reply and no copy comes back (no bcc); instead a copy is places in the local folder designated for copies of my Usenet postings. This behavior is inconsistent between local folders and even between messages in the same folder.

Running the Folder Account extension lets me designate the From account explicitly on a folder-to-folder basis; this seems to fix some folders but not others. Replying to messages in the IMAP inbox has no problems.
