Hey guys (of all genders) :-) I really hope you can help. Emails to me are addressed mostly to a domain name, but my Thunderbird main identity is linked to a gmail account (because the domain name is portable so I can't see how I could make that my main identity). I keep a duplicate copy of emails organised in Thunderbird and prefer to reply from there from whichever email address I want. I created the other identities I wanted, and added them to Thunderbird OK.
For a while my outgoing emails were received as coming from my domain name, exactly as I wanted. But lately, they've stopped doing that and are all giving the outgoing email address as the main gmail address that Thunderbird was set up in. It doesn't matter whether I move the domain name or the gmail address to the default main identity. I admit, I was doing some tweaking to Thunderbird in the Config. Editor after watching a youtube tutorial. I might have done something I shouldn't have without realising.
So I'm curious, how do I get the domain name email address of my choice displayed on outgoing emails that are written in Thunderbird on my home laptop?
And if I can't, then I'm willing to start all over again with Thunderbird, and in fact have uninstalled it several times today. But whenever I try to start again and reinstall it later on, it comes back with all my data from the version that went wrong. So obviously I don't wnat that version imported again. I want a clean slate. Assuming there's nothing I can do to make the domain name display correctly again (I always select the outgoing email identity carefully), how do I uninstall and start again with a clean slate and none of my previous data attached?
Thank you ever so much in advance for any help you can give me. I'm at the hair tearing stage here and it's not a good look. My thanks.
