You have to choose the role before composing. To do this, I use '#'
instead of 'C' to start the composition. I think you have to enable the
'alternate compose menu' to get that command, but I'm not sure of that.
(That might not be the only way to do it, but I think it makes more sense
than the typical 'C' path.)
Also note that if you postpone a message, it will retain the same role it
was started with. (e.g. for SMTP server settings)
