Can anyone tell me if its possible to set up Thunderbird to automatically send your mail from a specific account, depending on who your sending it to?
For example : I have two email accounts, one for work and one for personal that I use with Thunderbird. But the problem is that When I compose an email and fire it off to someone at work, it gets sent from my personal account because that is my default, and I forget to choose to send it from my work account. Is there anyway to configure it so that if I composed an email for someone at work it would just send it from my work account?
I wish to keep my personal email as my default as I use it far more than my work account.
I don't think there is any way to do that, I usually make sure the account I want to send from is highlighted before click the Send mail button, that insures the information in the top of the email looks like it's coming from that account.
It's not a pretty solution, but why not use Thunderbird for one set of addressees and an email client such as Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail for the remainder. You could then set the appropriate default account to suit each category of addressees.
There are also hundreds of add ons for Outlook Express which can set custom message rules and similar. It may be worth your while having a trawl through those.
