Virtual Identity

since 17th of August 2011 there is no version on anymore. I removed this version because it was impossible to maintain the addon with the increasing restrictions of Having four versions of Thunderbird around, but beeing allowed to publish only one version of my addon is no option to me. With current uploads I was forced to include fixes (for instance on namespace pollution) which required major code-changes - and not only to the current development tree of my extension (which would have been ok), but also to the old, compatibility tree. Thats too much, from now on my development goes my way. My relation to is finished after more than 6 years. 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 release is version 0.8.0 from 17th July 2011. This version is compatible with Thunderbird from 5.0 and Seamonkey from 2.1 on.

If you are using older versions of Thunderbird / Seamonkey, you can use version 0.7.2 of this extension.

If you have any comments or bug-reports please create a Ticket or write an email to (just at absorb dot it).

Till 6th of Dec. 2010 there was a PayPal Donation Button on this site.
I removed it, because PayPal uses it's role in the net (as some others) to block information.
If you don't like that too, then support Wikileaks.
