Problems sending from a customized email address

Hi,

Is this bug/problem/anomaly in Thunderbird posted in the right section?

Problem part #1 in sending an email from a customized email address

Although Thunderbird allows me to send an email from a customized email address by "Customize From Address...", and I have set things up so I do receive emails from my customized addresses. But when I reply to an email sent to that customized email address, Thunderbird ignores it and changes it to one of my regular email addresses instead.

This is a pain in the behind since then I have to waste my time and customize the from-address again. Worse, I sometimes forget and reply from the wrong address.

So Thunderbird definitely needs to become more user-friendly, and use my actual address used in the mail to which I'm replying rather than deciding I don't know what I'm doing and arrogantly deciding on changing my address for me.

Problem part #2 in sending an email from a customized email address

Worse, although this works in normal circumstances, if I save the draft email and then open it to edit before sending, then Thunderbird again thinks I don't know what I'm doing and refuses to send the email from my customized from-address. So I have to retype the email and set it up again to send from my customized from-address. See the bottom of these two screen-shots:

  • Thunderbird won't send from a custom address if saved and then draft opened but works if draft not closed 1.png
  • Thunderbird won't send from a custom address if saved and then draft opened but works if draft not closed 2.png

So fixing both of these errors/bugs/anomalies would be much appreciated.
