I can’t seem to find an addon that allows for this. I have a large number of email addresses as I manage many things between personal, hobby and work. However, when I reply to some of the emails that come in, it defaults the email I am sending from to the first one in the list if they sent to me hidden behind a mailing list in the to field.
For example, the top of the email would say:
- From: John Doe firstname.lastname@example.org
- Subject: Hey, I was wondering if you knew who will be there wed
- To: John Doe email@example.com
In order to know WHICH email that person sent the email to, I have to right click on the email body area, go to “Copy to clipboard” and “Headers”, and paste the information into notepad, scroll all the way up and look for “Envelope-to:” to find out.
I’d like to be able to see the address from the “Envelope-to” value I guess, in the main email window with the to/subject/from details at least. Even if Thunderbird can’t read it on the reply to default to the right address in the list automatically. I can at least save a ton of time by looking at the window and knowing immediatly which email address/account to reply from.
I hope I described the information enough. But the best way to say it is I need to say “Envelope-to” show up in the image above
