I have two family members with the exact same name, I would like to sort them in my inbox by their email addresses (which are, of course, not the same). How do I accomplish this in Mozilla Thunderbird?

An easy way to do this would be to set up two search folders, one for each family member.

Right-Click on the inbox, use From Contains and their email address as the filter, then at the bottom choose Save as Search Folder. Perhaps place the search folder under your inbox so they have their own inbox effectively.

You can also do this with the Show Address Only Thunderbird add-on which might be easier to use and work better than setting up a permanent Search Folder.
