I use Thunderbird (52.4.0). Occasionally, after sending an email to someone, I want to add more to that email before they reply. To do this, I simply go to my
Sent emails, click on appropriate email and click
Reply. This always used to automatically put in the
To box the address I desire. These days it puts my own email address in there. (On the one hand, this makes sense: I sent the email, so 'reply' shoudl go to the sender.) Let me give an example.
Suppose my email address is
firstname.lastname@example.org I want to email
email@example.com. I've sent
Johnan email, say, at 12pm. At 1pm, before he has replied, I want to add some more information. I go to
Sent, and click on the email I sent him. I then click
Reply. In the
Tobox, it says
firstname.lastname@example.org; in the past, it would've said
As noted above, I'm not saying that this doesn't make sense from a purely abstract point of view. However, it's incredibly unhelpful. I often find myself accidentally emailing myself. (When I had Outlook, it did the same; sometimes I wouldn't even notice that I'd email myself, and the person I wanted to contact never knew anything about it.)
My question is this: how can I (or, is there a way that I can) change it so that it's back to how it used to be?
