since August 2011 there is no version on addons.mozilla.org anymore. Development will continue, but on this site.

Virtual Identity is an extension / add-on for Mozilla Thunderbird and the Mozilla Seamonkey Suite. Using Virtual Identity you can simply edit the sender-address in your email to whatever you like - as long as your mail-server accepts the resulting mail. This is useful especially for people who have an own mail-server and don’t like adding every possible account as an Identity in the mail-client.

The feature to create instant, temporary Identities gives also increased possibilities to reply to other emails. Therefore the Virtual Identity extension contains a feature called Smart-Reply, which creates an identity based on information found in an received email without user interaction. Additionally Virtual Identity is able to save used Virtual Identities and reuse them for every new mail to the same recipient.

Current stable release is version 0.9.27 from 15th December 2014. This version is compatible with Thunderbird from 13.0 and Seamonkey from 2.11 on. If you are using older versions of Thunderbird / Seamonkey, you can use version 0.8.9 or version 0.7.3 of this extension.

There is also a test-version (increase robustness against errors) available, if you like you can try ​beta release virtual_identity-0.9.27.14-g32b4561-tb+sm.xpi and report any issues with this beta-release.
