I click 'reply' to an email received, or 'edit as new' to a previous email I have sent my correspondent,expecting it to be from me at the address the they use for me. (In my system where I own domains, I give each person their own address to use to email me. I have many reasons for doing this.) I do not keep record of it, I get it from their last message. (I have just dreamed up 'email@example.com' for use by you). ) However, I get that DREADED yellow box:-
'A unique identity matching the From address was not found. The message will be sent using the current From field and settings from identity
Joe Bloggs <firstname.lastname@example.org> X
Where 'Joebloggs' is a real person with a real address who has nothing to do with the email I am creating. There seems NO WAY I can stop this happening, I have to to remember to 'customize from address', copy/past from the recipient (me) to the 'from' address in my message. If I keep saving partial message as a draft, T bird is liable to do this again. If I miss it, my hapless correspondent is liable to reply to Joe Bloggs, giving him the full thread, but not me! This causes at best delays and stupid conversations, at worst dreadful embarrassment. If TBird did not so rudely interfere, the from address is correct! CAN I STOP THIS DREADFUL TBIRD TRAIT, or at the very least reject the effect of the yellow message if it happens. I would be so grateful if I knew how to do this.
