Up till Thunderbird 60, this was usually the first add-on I installed. One of the most useful I ever used.

Since then, very disappointing. Even though a version has since been released for the current 68 version, it does not work.

I would give 10 stars if I was still on 60, but now that I have moved up to 68 and lost one of my favorites, it will have to be just one. Would give it 0 if that was possible, but the concept alone deserves a star.

This is a very useful add-on and I am really really happy it got updated.
It allows me to use different identities and have each identity assigned to a specific folder.
Since I've used this add-on, all the emails I received or sent ended up where they should.
Thanks a lot Christopher for this update.

In the event you do read this review, Cheers, from Richard

Thank you so much for updating Folder Account to work with current TB versions!
This add-on is essential for me and none of the other add-ons that try to facilitate coping with different identities really works seamlessly for me. Folder Account does! No more wrong sender addresses. Should be part of TB itself!

Having emails from different email addresses forwarded into one big imap account, the add-on enables me to reply using the correct email address. Great!

*Now again working for TB60!* Thank you very much. As the old version was not working with TB60, I had the painful chance to notice, how valuable this plugin is!

Worked great until TB60. Hope there will be an update to support >= TB60.

Great addon which I used for years. 5 stars because of that.

Unfortunally the addon does not work anymore since TB 60.0 - it totally breaks the message window (new messages, reply, forward - just everything).

I hope there will be an update for TB 60, please please please!

Exactly what I wanted. Lets you choose your identity on a per-folder basis, from the folder properties dialogue. This should be default Thunderbird code.

I hope the developer updates it to work with TB 60.

I tried the addon, and like said below, changing the from account of one folder, changes from of all folders. I see no benefit in using this addon.

The extension is not displayed as incompatible in TB 45.5.0, but still, it's not working anymore. Whenever you set a "From Account" in the folder properties dialog, it is being changed to the new setting in *all* folders of this account, making this a per-account setting. This is actually TB's default behavior, hence, the add-on currently is not working for me.

It used to work very well, though, back in the days.

The AddOn works like expected (with Thunderbird 38.4.0 at the moment). The feature request from David.P is implemented as an option - also per folder, which is just the right thing:
Ignore From account on Reply or Reply (let Thunderbird choose)

Well in MY case TB did exactly the opposite and was sending mail with the wrong address when I did not pay attention to choose the correct account whereas the Seamonkey mail client did it correct. But as I use some addons that have no equivalent in SeaMonkey I was very pleased with this add-on. In my case I always route mail to certain folders, connected to a certain account and in the past replying to lists always picked the right mail address as "sent" but that behaviour suddenly disappeared and it took me a lot of effort to first find out why and changing settings in the about:config.
So: Big thank you for creating and maintaining this add-on!

Associating a folder with a standard identity is great for composing NEW mail. So far, the Add-on is perfect.

However, the Add-on overrides the standard Thunderbird behavior when REPLYING -- where Thunderbird beautifully chooses the identity, based on one's own mail address that the original mail was SENT to.

When the Folder Account Add-on is active however, it chooses the wrong identity most of the time when replying to an e-mail.

This problem applies when you use more than one identity in the same folder (e.g. when you have two work addresses and use both in the "work" folder, or two private addresses and use both in the "private" folder).

It would therefore be much better if the Folder Account Add-on would only jump in when composing NEW mail -- and leave Thunderbird to pick the correct "From" address when REPLYING.

Thanks already for consideration.

Still a great add-on for version 24, just need a very small fix.
In the file "folderAccount_compose.xul" found within the .xpi file under "chrome/content", replace the string gAccountManager with the string MailServices.accounts and all is fine again.
This is a must extension for anyone managing accounts with multiple identities sorted to different folders.

This most excellent add on very sadly seems to have some conflict with other add ons in TB24. I've not yet sorted which other add on is responsible but if I don't disable Folder Account then when creating a new email I can't type anything in the main window, it defaults to HTML (I always use plain text) and the sender field in the email is blank. Neither does a reply quote the text from the email to which a reply is being sent.

I'd still give this add on an unreserved five stars: it's brilliant. Just be aware there may be a problem with TB24.

Thought it didn't work any longer until I realized that the folder to be modified should also be the one selected in the Folder Pane (Ubuntu 13.04 with TB 17.0.5). If not (using the context menu of another folder), all your identities are jammed.
