    How much would you be willing to pay for it?

    I provide Matrix hosting (as well as XMPP and ActivityPub Mastodon) on Communick [0].

    At the moment I'm more focused on taking these services to offer custom domain hosting, and personally I've been staying away from servers and using DecSync [1] + syncthing to get my calendars and contacts on my devices [2], so I haven't thought about adding a DAV server to the mix on Communick. But if you tell me there is any actual demand, I would definitely consider it.

    I feel like I had this working in Evolution once?

    In reality I found that 99% of the time I only use aliases like yours for receiving email. On the one day a month I need to send from [email protected], I just sack up and add it as an account alias. Le sigh.

    Of course, mutt does this right:
