#StackBounty: #email #thunderbird #reply Set reply-to address in thunderbird to the address from which the mail was sent to, when using…

Bounty: 50


I’ve been using a CATCHALL alias on my domains for quite some time. And up until now, I have had to type the email-address which I want the reciepent to respond to, manually, in thunderbird.


I gave person A the address personA@mydomain.tld and person B the address personB@mydomain.tld for them to send me emails. For this purpose, I set up the address emails@mydomain.tld and enabled it as the catchall alias for mydomain.tld.

Once I recieve an email from either person A or person B, they arrive as expected in the emails@mydomain.tld inbox. I would like to respond from emails@mydomain.tld and I want person A and person B to reply back to the addresses they got from me initially; these are as mentioned earlier: personA@mydomain.tld and personB@mydomain.tld. Currently, I need to type this information manually by selecting a reply-to address in the reply to email window of Thunderbird.


How can I have thunderbird do this automagically?

Additional information:
I am currently looking into this, and from the account settings, this is where I think I need to make changes (the currently set ${recipient-address}@mydomain.tld does not work).

I’ve looked around here on superuser, but haven’t found any answers to this issue. There is this question but the answer is not what I am looking for.
