Virtual Identity

also available at

since August 2011 there is no version on 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 0.8.8 from 5th December 2011. This version is compatible with Thunderbird from 5.0 and Seamonkey from 2.1 on. There is also a preview with new features available for current version, if you like you can try alpha version 0.9pre3

If you are using older versions of Thunderbird / Seamonkey, you can use version 0.7.3 of this extension.

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.
