I'm using evolution to reply and I have it checking two accounts.  If I
reply to an email, it is automatically responding with the address to
which it was sent.  If I create a new message, I have to remember to
select the From: in the pull down menu.

Another option is to subscribe your default account to the list and then
turn off mail delivery.
