I recently upgraded to Tbird 115 (on my 2019 Macbook Pro using Sonoma 14.1) when some of the addons I loved made their way up to this level. (Yippee!). The conversion was mostly painless; I have one quirk I can't quite figure out:
Shortly after upgrading, I created a secondary email account that received email from a number of email aliases I use for receiving email. I forgot that when I set up a new email account on Thunderbird, it automatically adds an additional SMTP server for sending mail "Outoing Server (SMTP) Settings." I caught that after a few days and deleted the SMTP settings under the "Outgoing Server (SMTP) tab at the bottom of the list of accounts in the Account Settings tab, and then also went to the settings of the identify and at the bottom made sure "Outgoing Server (SMTP)" is set to the default outgoing server.
For at least some emails that come in to that email, when I hit REPLY, the original settings for the outgoing server (the SMTP settings that use the secondary email address) pop up, and if I don't catch it the email is successfully sent.
These "phantom SMTP settings" appear in the FROM box, but don't appear as an option when I remember to go up and manually use the pulldown menu to change the FROM email to the default.
I attached a partial screenshot of the Outgoing Servers list showing three SMTP identities (none of which are the "phantom" SMTP account which starts with the letter "J"), and also a partial screenshot of the Outgoing Server setting on the identify of this secondary email account where it indicates the default outgoing server (P@trg).
I did some poking around both here and elsewhere, and haven't had luck finding a solution; any suggestions would be most welcome!
