Changing Mutt behaviour when sending mail


Hi. How can I make my Mutt do the following when sending e-mail.
1. To look at the "From:" field and use different keys for sendmail
(actually I use msmtp ) to select different accounts.
2. To look at the "To:" field and move the sent mail to different
mailboxes, not the default one for all my outgoing mail.

And one more thing - how to make it show in the pager only
tagged (or new or somehow else marked) mail.

Thanks.

I'm not sure if this is correct, but for #2, try (in muttrc):
set force_name

I don't know about the others
