Virtual Identity

http://blog.absorb.it/wp-content/uploads/2007/03/vi_040pre.png

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.

Virtual Identity was completely rewritten in 2007. You can download the latest release from addons.mozilla.org. If you like to know something about the history of the extension, have a look at the former Home-Page of Virtual Identity. If you have some suggestions or bug-reports, please add a comment here or write an email to me (just at absorb dot it).
