New Warning Message in Version 102 sending to multiple recipients

Nothing major to report, but when I now send a message to 2 or more people, I get the following warning message

"The message contains multiple recipients" it then tells me to use mail merge etc.

In all previous versions I never received this error message and I have looked for a way to turn it off because quite often I am emailing or replying to several people, and it is just one extra mouseclick I don't need.

It still if you press okay and don't follow the instructions but it is just a warning message that's not needed in my opinion and should be able to be turned off.

Do you have the Mailmerge addon installed? If so, that would explain the message.

Hello David, thank you very much for your email. Yes I do have Mail Merge installed but I have never had these messages previously so I went and had a bit of a dig around to look.

I am fully this can help somebody else with the same problem but I went into the extensions and went into the setup of mail merge and found a setting which I've never seen before.

This was "recipients reminder"

it is currently set to 1, don't know if this has changed since the upgrade to version 102 of Thunderbird but as I said I've never had these message issues before. I put this number up to 10 and the error message/warning has gone away......

Thank you for your support, it is very helpful to have knowledgeable people like yourself out there assisting us "normal people"
