#53 closed enhancement (fixed)

Disable intelligent answer for some contacts

Reported by: jcb at thefrecat dot org Owned by:
Version: 0.4.4 Keywords:


When you reply to a mailing list, you get the identity of the list (which rejects the message) and you write to the message's author, even if a reply-to has been specified.

It would be nice to specify address book entries for which no "intelligence" is used.

please use version 0.5.2 for mailing-list related issues. It changed the handling of mailing-lists (Beside, Thunderbird names collection of recipient-adresses as mailing lists, so don't know if you talk about the Thunderbird-internal feature or some external mailin-lists)

At all, Virtual Identity does not play around with the recipients, which are selected if you reply to any mail. Virtual Identity only adapts the sender address to an appropriate one.

The second point seems interesting, I will think about this 'no intelligence' per recipient option.

He clearly speaks of mailing lists.

I installed the 0.5.3 and ran into a related problem: when I reply to a mailing list (whatever@…) Virtual Identity sets sender to the list's address AND removes this address from recipients! This is bad.

Virtual Identity should check for mailing list headers (editable list, with at least "Mailing-List" and "List-Id" there by default) and DON'T CHANGE sender to addresses found there.

think this would/should happen only once per list. If you use the storage, the senders Identity get stored and will be reused later.

Anyway, just followed your suggestion and the extension is now checking for the list-id header. If found, the to-header will not be used as a potential senders address any more [287].

Thanks for the tip, regards, Rene
