so bitcoind has that cool account feature where you can group addresses under account names and such.  My question is the following:

If I receive bitcoins at an address in account A, and then send bitcoins from account B using the "sendfrom" command, could it appear in the block chain that the sent coins came from account A?

In other words, do the accounts act like separate wallets, or are they just ways of organizing and labeling the addresses and bitcoins in the main wallet?

Let me know if I'm not making any sense and I'll try again.  Thanks for any help you can provide, this is actually very important to help me track down some bitcoins Smiley
There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. The most secure are full nodes like Bitcoin-Qt, but full nodes are more resource-heavy, and they must do a lengthy initial syncing process. As a result, lightweight clients with somewhat less security are commonly used.

They just organize addresses. There's no way to control which addresses you actually send from yet.
