Introduction

... some months ago I switched from Kmail to Thunderbird - and I really liked it. But i missed the possibility to change my senders identity on the fly, so I wrote this extension... If you are using Virtual Identity on Windows, please see the Bug-Reports section.
Have a look in the Usage section to understand how it works. (there is now a so called SmartReply-Feature) - and check out the new Options dialog.

Thunderbird 2.0b2
on: Fri 09 of Feb, 2007 [08:46 UTC] score: 0.55 Vote: 1 2 3 4 5

It seems like this extension works as it should on Thunderbird2.0b2 with Nightly Tester Tools installed. Will there be a real update for it any time soon?

Great product, though!

Is it possibe to make this work with the 'Send Later' button?
on: Mon 28 of Nov, 2005 [10:16 UTC] score: 0.59 Vote: 1 2 3 4 5

This extension was in principle exactly what I am looking for until I noticed that it does not work in conjunction with Bart Decreems 'Send Later' button extension. Is there no way to make this work? It is pretty important to me as I frequently insert URL's into my emails and I want to check the links before I send my emails off i.e. I need to use the 'Send Later' button.

X-Original-To header support
on: Fri 07 of Oct, 2005 [10:18 UTC] score: 0.60 Vote: 1 2 3 4 5

Can you make this extension look at the X-Original-To: header of an email you are replying to and use this for the Virtual Address (and to use as the address to compare against permanent account/identity addresses)??

On mailing lists etc. The To: header is often not really who you want to be replying as but the X-Original-To: usually is... Basically, add some logic that grabs the X-Original-To: header if it exists, otherwise grab the To: header as you currently do?

This would make the extension rock 100%!! I'd be happy to help code if you will accept a patch??

it works fine unless...
on: Sat 24 of Sep, 2005 [04:01 UTC] score: 0.59 Vote: 1 2 3 4 5

unless i have installed the "external editor extension".It seems "virtual identity" conflicts with it and smart reply don't work.It's a pity because i need both extensions.

Bye

When I click on the "+" and add a fake name and a fake e-mail addy and send it to one of my other mail accounts it takes the fake name but not the fake e-mail address... what am I doing wrong?

A different virtual email address selection algorithm
on: Wed 20 of Jul, 2005 [15:50 UTC] score: 0.59 Vote: 1 2 3 4 5

Hi. Great extension. It is the closest thing I have found to a fix to this issue: http://forums.mozillazine.org/viewtopic.php?t=294724

about the intelligent selection of the 'From' address for a reply. Would you be able to create a slightly different extension that found the first (lowermost) listed 'Delivered-To' header in the email to which you are replying (or forwarding).

Cheers,

Mark Porthouse (you can Google me if you want to reply)
