From Mail based on Account, not on eMail
I've just upgraded from Thunderbird 60.? to 68.2.0 and noticed a big behaviour change.
I have multiple accounts and sometimes I write a reminder from one account to another (e.g. FROM email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org). Now if I reply from email@example.com to firstname.lastname@example.org Thunderbird chooses email@example.com as sender - NOT firstname.lastname@example.org. Is it possible to change this behaviour?
Thanks a lot in advance!

Is email@example.com sending through the smtp server that has firstname.lastname@example.org's password and User Name? Open Tools/Account Settings, select the email@example.com account in the left pane, then look at Outgoing Server (SMTP) in the lower right pane. If the selection is Default (firstname.lastname@example.org) instead of an smtp server with b's credentials, that may account for what you see.
Hi, it is the same SMTP but they use different Logins. I think its a behaviour problem from Thunderbird itself. Because if I click reply from the Mail on email@example.com the identity dropdown on the top switches to firstname.lastname@example.org - even if the mail resides in the account/folder of email@example.com.
And even more strange: email from firstname.lastname@example.org in account of email@example.com if i click reply the SENDER switches to firstname.lastname@example.org and the RECEIVER to email@example.com ?!?!
Problem still persists on multiple local accounts. Any idea?
The normal behavior is: if you reply to a message in a folder, the From account is the account in which the folder is located. The actual From address may appear different to the recipient if the sender's smtp replaces the original From address with that related to the smtp server. That is why sending accounts and smtp servers should have the same credentials.
You appear to have that set up, so I can't explain your results, unless you have some kind of identity add-on that is malfunctioning.
Actually you can watch firefox switch the from address as far as I can see. The SMTP servers are per account - for each theyr own correct one... I really don't get it...
