Does anyone know how to make the To: box editable. I 'own' a domain and reply from various addresses but do not wish to have multiple accounts, just multiple identities or to be able to edit the To: box. Any suggestions or pouinters to info gratefully received.

Thanks, Erin

I'm assuming you mean the "From:" box, or maybe the "Reply to:" box ???

The way I do it is to set up multiple accounts within Thunderbird. All use common SMTP server settings but different "From" and "Reply-To" settings.
The latest version of Thunderbird allows you to send incoming mail from all accounts to a common inbox, to avoid having to check each one separately. All versions allow you to use common Sent Items, Draft and Trash boxes.
When you compose a message the "From" box becomes a drop-down where you select the identity you want for that message.

Thanks Nigel. Did mean the from but trying to avoid all that account setting up. Trying to find if there is a hack to allow the drop down to be an editable textbox instead.
