TB 68 is out now and there is a big change for extensions.
Since a compatibility checker is missing, I would like to ask if this VI can be used with that version?

A conversion is necessary, these steps must be followed for conversion: https://developer.thunderbird.net/add-ons/updates

Hi, currently busy I will have a look into required changes during the next months... Sorry, this will take a while.

Stay tuned, regards, Rene

It's not until Thunderbird rolls out yet another extension-breaking update that you remember, "oh, yeah: this extension is one of the reasons why I still even use Thunderbird".

True. It really became a must-have for me.
Luckily Thunderbird allows you to "Customize From Address..." manually.

Yeah, but that requires actual effort ....and I'm soooooooooper-lazy. :)

... and it is much safer and faster to do it with this add-on instead of the "Customize from Address..." function.

Hi,
after looking into the development path of thunderbird (see for instance here) I can see that the only way will be to get the complete functionality into core thunderbird. This will take a while, sorry.

these are the steps:

  1. add some own-server/catch-all option to accounts for composing messages with the right senders email (bugzilla-link)
  2. change from-field as free-editable for own-server/catch-all accounts
  3. store mail address used for recipients together with collected addresses in address-book

Lets see how this goes on, but once this is done it will last way longer than changing some extension ever and ever again.

Regards, Rene

Too bad. Can we help you Rene in some way?
Thanks for your extension.
I'm sure that you guys have already check if any other add-on could replace (in some way) this extension in the meanwhile.

As others have said - it's only when TB breaks VI that you remember it was there :)

It's absolutely vital that I have VI running so I've just downgraded back to v67 and won't be upgrading again until VI functionality is restored somehow - be that upgraded add-on or, even better, it's built into TB directly :D :D
