I support this Add-ons on on my theme.
I expect the version that supported TB3 early.
Thanking you in advance.

Great add-on, but I was notified today that it's not compatible with Thunderbird 2.0.0.21. Is there some kind developer out there, if not the author, who will update this extension?

I subscribe tu AuthSMTP's suggestion. I have to scan recivd emails and send forward them to colegues depending on the content. It's pretty anoyig to place the original sender into the "replay-to" so when the colegues hit "reply" the mail goes to the oiginal sender instead of me.

I find the add-on very handy in particular when I send emails to a large number of friends (usually using BCC). When I later notice that some of them was missing on the list, I can simply re-send the original email (including any attachments) to the new recipient(s).

Yet this scenario brought up a privacy issue (at least for version 0.7.4):
For each *multi-line* email header, all its lines but the first one are simply copied from the original email. This is a severe
privacy problem for multi-line sensitive headers like BCC, where all the following lines of this header are still visible in the bounced email!
I've corrected this with the code patch given below. You can download the patched version from http://home.arcor.de/j-i-t/mail_redirect-075-DvO-tb20x.xpi

Two further observations.
* Would be nice if the title of the window in which the bounced email is
"composed" does not just just say "Mail Redirect" but also gives the
email subject, as done by the usual "compose" window. This is helpful
e.g. when there are multiple compose windows open.
* To me, the choice between "Resent-To", "Resent-Cc", and "Recent-Bcc"
is superfluous and confusing - is there any difference concerning the
visibility of the new recipents' names? If not, just offer Resent-To.

Mail Redirect works perfectly, but I have a problem using an authenticated SMTP server with strict anti-spam rules. It requires the "From" header to be an authorised address. What would greatly enhance the program would be the ability to customize the headers. E.g. The original "From" header becomes a "Reply-to" and the user can specify a default "From" header to go in the bounced message. I hope this makes sense.

Works pretty well, but you cannot move from one address line to the next by keyboard, only by mouse. You can enter by manual typing every address with commas between them, but in that case, autocompletion only works for the first address. This is a pain. I'm using this for redirecting family email to my two siblings and sometimes other people. It's a pane not to have normal return/tab character handling.

Also, that feature someone mentioned where it puts junk in your mail about redirecting sounds like a pain, something I'd only want as an option. Not a good thing to force on users. I haven't noticed that yet, but I'm afraid I will next time I update.

Everything works nice but version 0.7.4 now adds an icon to subject column indicating the message was redirected. Probably it is rather useful but not for me.

I used it to send my mail back to POP3 server after I accidentally deleted it (as recommended in Mozillazine KB). All the messages got this icon and I had to manually edit Inbox file to get rid of them (I cleared all X-Mozilla-Keys fields).

It would be nice to have an option to disable marking messages as redirected for current or all operations.

The program does not allow for one click redirection, and searching for the function is a hassle.

This Add-on is gorgeous and adds a missing functionality. I upgraded TB to 2.0.0.16 an downloaded the existing version of Mail Redirect and everything is working fine, quick. Great, Keep up working, Pawel! :-)

Has become virtually useless as it seems to have stopped working with Vista (or Thunderbird 2.0.0+). I used to utilize this a lot - now I miss it and I wish somebody could upgrade it to a more compatible version...

This add-on is great for the office. Stops the return email to the wrong person. Saves so much time, but has stopped working with Thunderbird update 2.0.0.16.
Can it be updated so we can continue using a great add-on.

Still does not work (or is unbelievably erratic) with IMAP (we think).

Makes it useless for anyone using GoogleApps.

What it does, it does very well!!

However, there are 2 standard Tbird features which this add-on should support, and presently doesn't.

1) Be able to set the Priority of the redirected mail.

2) Be able to request a return receipt.

These are standard features when sending email.

Other than missing those 2 features, this is a great add-on!!
