Update: email address autocomplete also fails to work in such cases.

Hi Alex,

thanks for the log, yes, that's how the extension handles the reply-case :) means it is for sure no bug but maybe some wrong conception... Usually you wan't reply to yourself, and to get rid of automatically adding a retrieved Identity as a new virtual Identity and targeting the message to the same thing it is made like this. Shouldn't it? Can you describe me a use case to think of a better implementation?

Nice Regards, Rene

I reply to myself quite a lot since I often use my inbox as a "ToDo?" list, particularly since I access the email both from home and from work.

Why not let TB handle the replies? If you want to change existing functionality, please let it be configurable.

Thanks, Alex.

Hi Alex,

the Problem giving TB the job to handle that issue is, that TB does not know that this identity (the virtual one) might exist and stays for yourself. I will choose a fixed one, therefore you might run into problems on every reply.

Now implemented a new check which ensures, that if there is not more than one recipient it won't be removed. Beside added a currently hidden option to disable this overall feature of removing any recipient. The option is named "idSelection_removeSmartIdentityFromRecipients" and can be changed with TBs pref editor (set to false to disable). Implemented with [ef65ae72d0a], will be part of 0.6.0pre9.

Nice regards, Rene

Thanks, Rene.

I was running into the issue with a static identity.

Also, can you please look into the address auto-complete failures?

Best regards, Alex.
