I use Thunderbird with 4 email accounts. All use IMAP. I have three usernames, let us use name1 and name2 and name3, and 3 providers, let us use prov1 and prov2 and prov3. My email accounts, therefore, are email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, and firstname.lastname@example.org. Provider 3 is hosted at gmail.com.
Accounts email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, and email@example.com all work as expected. Each of these accounts sends and copies outbound mail to their respective sent folder and receives inbound mail to their respective inbox.
While firstname.lastname@example.org sends and copies outbound mail to its sent folder, inbound mail is inexplicably directed to the inbox of email@example.com! Mail does not even briefly flicker in Gmail. I can manually move an email to the proper account in Thunderbird but that is incomplete. The mail disappears from the account in Thunderbird but the IMAP server at prov1 retains a copy that no longer replicates to Thunderbird. The mail, when moved in Thunderbird to the correct account, places the mail in the correct account in Thunderbird and places the mail on the IMAP server of Gmail.
How do I get Thunderbird to receive mail for firstname.lastname@example.org in the correct inbox?
