Change FROM Account Based on TO/CC/BCC Email Domains

I have had my own domain for a couple of decades. Never had any problems with people receiving emails from me until recently.

Through a number of tests, I discovered my domain was not black listed but instead the SPAM filters on certain providers would put my emails into SPAM until the recipient explicitly went into the mail browser and selected not SPAM for my account. See attached from https://glockapps.com/

One of those providers is Rogers here in Canada which is using Yahoo for email. The users addresses are in @rogers.com. I happen to have a Rogers account as well as my private domain which is my default in Thunderbird.

What I would like to do is have a plug-in that would look at all the email addresses I'm sending to. If a particular domain match is found, Thunderbird would change to use a different outbound account. For example, if I was sending from paul@mydomain.net, and a @Rogers destination was found, TB would change to send from my paul@rogers.com account.

At this moment, I doubt if there is a plug-in to do this. I have never explored writing a TB plug-in so wanted to ask if there are events hook onto when SEND is pressed to do what I want?

Thanks

New W10 PC up to date Installed TB 78.10.1 64bit installed Extensions used and working fine on my other laptop also w10 and up to date None of the extensions I installed work - naturally the are all enabled. My other PC was using 32 bit version so uninstalled 64 bit removed profile etc and installed 32 bit. Still no go Once again uninstalled etc decided to try an older version of TB 78.8.0 still no extensions work. Installed a theme and it worked fine. Firefox is installed and its extensions work fine. Other than the extensions problem TB is working OK.

Emails screened straight to Trash don't count as deleted when retrieving from POP server

I screen a lot of junk mail through rules I've manually entered to a Deletable folder. It occurred to me that some especially egregious ones, I can filter them direct to trash. So far so good.

Now, I have TBird configured to leave messages on the POP server for 2 weeks I think it is, or until I delete an email. That way, if I look at email on my phone or other device I get all non-trash mail for the last two weeks, and all mail (including junk) since the last time I fetched mail to my laptop, which is the long term archival location.

Problem is, if I make a rule to filter something straight to trash, TBird doesn't identify that email as deleted when next fetching messages, so the server doesn't delete them, and they're still there clogging up my phone.

Any way around this?

Hi!

For work I use Tbird for years now, sometimes I have to prepare a lot of mails, eg 30, which I fill during the day and send after hours of work. I then see 30 times the 'new message ' text in my taskbar. It is quite hard to find the right mail when you see 'new me....' x 30. Would it be possible to change that?

I think it is in the language pack , but how to edit that? Is there no add-on to take care of that? I have been combing out the add on section but perhaps I miss sth.

Help is very much appreciated. Thanks a lot for your time,

I would like to be able to change the grey background and the width of pills in the addressing area. I think I can do this with userChrome.css once I know what the pill and pill content are called in stylesheets. Where/how can I find that information? Other advice?

I just purchased a new laptop. I have copied my Address Books and all my Calendars to my new laptop. I was able to point my Thunderbird mail accounts to the mail folders I copied to the new laptop, but I do not see anywhere that I can tell Thunderbird to point the Address Books or the Calendars to a particular folder.

How do I change the default locations for the Address Books and Calendars?

Thanks, Lew

We have several email accounts under different domains that were set up as POP accounts and now all of a sudden they have changed to IMAP. When this happens, it deletes every single email we have and is quite frustrating. Any idea how this happens and how to keep it from happening again?

I know how to insert an image into an email. What I need is a way to insert an image that resides on a remote server (which I own). I actually got it to work, but here's the problem. When I remove or change the image on the server, each time a recipient of the original email opens the email, he still sees the original image. It never changes and still shows up even if I remove the image from my server. What's going on? Thanks
