In Mail for iOS 8+, when you write a new message, the app will automatically select your "From" address based on the history of your conversations with this contact.

I would really like to use the same feature in Mail for Mac OS X. Does anybody knows a plugin or a script for that? I could not find anything alike the internet (maybe because the function is somewhat difficult to formulate...).

To be more schematic:

I have my email addresses X and Y installed on my iPhone or iPad. My default address is X, but I am used to write emails to contact C with my address Y.

I start a new message. By default, "from" address X is selected. I type the address of my contact C in the "To" field. And now the magic happens: As most of my previous conversations with C were made with my address Y, the app automatically changes my "From" address from X to Y.
