how to switch 'From address' using rules:role in Re-Alpine ?


i use the terminal-based Re-Alpine email client 2.20 with 4 mail servers, and i am perfectly happy about workflow and low overhead in dealing with such.

however, i am uncertain how to load an alternate rules:role of choice for when i reply to or forward an incoming email, as opposed to simply chose a role among the 4 listed in rules:role when i compose a new email from scratch because Alpine conveniently asks at that time what role i want to invoke.

in short : how do i switch an email 'From adress' using rules:role in Alpine when processing an incoming email ?

problem solved, silly me : i just had to make sure that each single rules:role uses 'With confirmation' for each mail action such as reply, forward or compose. therefore each LIT (role) line in in ~/.pinerc ends with :

Code:
RTYPE=YES/FTYPE=YES/CTYPE=YES
i love simple text based solution...
