No MUA I know of, does this. Maybe the Mahogany will do.

I also don't know if it is good idea to enlist all possible addresses that I
may use in any context. I can think of about 8 addresses that my emails can
come from (that I use in various contexts and situations). Should I list all
of those in my key? Currently I list there only 3 addresses that are certain
to reach me. And listing all those during verification (below is output from
mutt) does not help much when there's From: <discussion list> for example.
