I highly recommend this add-on as it allows the user to control intended recipient(s) of their emails. However I'd like it might be even more secure with the following feature:

It should notify you when you send a message without any info both in To, Cc, and Bcc fields – in other words when you have omitted to specify any intended recipient of your message. Thunderbird still send your message but to an undisclosed recipient which of course does not exist.

Dear Hiroya Matsuba, could you please consider adding this feature which is badly required? Many thanks in advance.

Does exactly what I wanted to avoid inadvertently sending emails outside of my organization. Would be nice if the confirm screen let you remove recipients instead of having to cancel and remove from the email itself.

アドレス自動補完に関する目的が達成でき、有用と感じました。

目的:
メールの宛先欄を入力する際のインクリメンタルサーチ&オートコンプリート機能において、誤入力を防ぐためにサーチ対象から外部ドメインのアドレスを除外したい。
[制約事項]LDAPは設置しない(できない)。

達成できた事:
指定ドメインのみアドレス自動補完を実行する。

想定外:
このアドオンの性格から、メール作成時にアドレスの表示名部分が上書きされ、所属等が入力されてしまう。
→「Strip everything other than e-mail addresses in To and Cc fields」オプションを有効にして表示名を削除することで対処した。

インクリメンタルサーチの開始文字数が多く、日本の環境(姓が2文字の人が圧倒的)だとUXに難がある。
→アドオンのコードを改変しました。
[email protected] > components > autocomplete.js
 215行目あたりの「length > 5」を「length > 2」等に変更。

要望:
1.メール作成時にアドレスの表示名部分を上書きするのを回避するオプションが欲しい。
(アドオンが想定する利用状況とは異なるのかもしれませんが、アドレス入力の補助としてのみ使いたい。)

2.インクリメンタルサーチの開始文字数を設定するオプションが欲しい。

3.バグ?の改善(アドレス帳登録画面)
オプション > Auto completion > Select address books used for auto completion
上記設定項目において、アドレス帳を左ペインの「Used address books~」から全て外してOKとすると、再度ダイアログを表示した時に全てのアドレス帳が左ペインに登録されてしまう。

4.バグ?の改善(メール作成画面のFocusの挙動)
メール作成の際、アドレス自動補完後に宛先入力欄のFocusをTab移動させると末尾の空白の入力欄まで飛ばされる。
ただし自動補完されなかった入力欄では再現しない。
→Tab(Shift+Tabの逆順も同様)による遷移が不可能になる。
→もしこれを実装するならEnterキーでこのような挙動だと良さそう。

This is a great plug-in! It delivers what it promises.

I have three suggestions for improvements, though:
- Every time I send an e-mail it adds an e-mail in the Collected Addresses Address Book that concatenates the recipient name and its company information, just as it shows in the e-mail recipient field. This is annoying. The address is already in some other address book and it should not be added again.
- While filling the e-mail recipients, Thunderbird, by default, usually keep the recipient type when typing subsequent addresses. For instance, if I put someone in CC and then press Tab to add another address, it will by default be in CC as well. When using this plug-in it will reset the next address to To, which is also annoying.
- The plug-in does not expand contacts lists.

Love this add-on. It frequently helps me avoid addressing mistakes.

I've posted a updated and fixed version which is compatible with Thubderbird 60.2.1 at the link below.

Just a warning: ALWAYS be careful about installing plugins from other websites! (You can open the plugin up and compare it with the original if you'd like to verify the changes I've made.)

If you have other fixes/changes to add then let me know on github.

This is a great add-on but the tip for making it compatible with 60.3.0 didn't work for me. I hope the author updates it.

Really useful add-on. Thank you.

Developer: Following the recent update to tb 60.x I've patched your add-on to make it compatible with Gecko 58 (it's so useful we couldn't do without it). Please contact me if you would like me to send you the patch, as I can't find hosting details on GitHub etc.

I think it's a great add-on but was wondering if anyone could update it to work with 60.x?

I was very disappointed when I found out that the confirmation dialog box only displays the "Display Name" and the "Email address" from the address book entry. It doesn't display the "Organization" (or similar) which was the whole reason that I wanted this addon - i.e. to show me the organisations that the recipients are affiliated with before sending an email.

In other words, it only shows what you can already see in the email itself.

This would be much better if there were options to control which address book fields were displayed in the confirmation dialog box.

My workaround is to always include the organisation name in the "Display name" in the address book entry so that it shows up in both the standard auto completion and in the confirmation dialog box.

The addon's auto-completion doesn't seem to work anywhere near as well as the standard auto completion but with the workaround mentioned above it probably doesn't matter.

The idea is good, but implementation is irritating. You can set it as you want, in any way, but recipient suggestion only works if you have very few similar addresses. In many cases it doesn't work so you have to write the entire address manually or picking it from the address book. And address suggestion is very important to get things done quickly.

Very useful, great addon. But could Mr Hiroya Matsuba take some development ideas into consideration, please?
Sometimes I have to send an email to many recipients who do not have to see each others email addresses. (It is not a spam. E.g. I have to inform residents of a house about sg, and their emails are in email lists) Of course I should use bcc, but rarely I forget it, and in these cases it is extremely embarrassing. Your addon helps me to think, but perhaps there would be some easy development options?
E.g.: possibility of input some external emails (not domain) / confirmation window only in case of these external emails / confirmation only in case of specific email adresses (list of) / managing exceptions somehow / confirmation if a specific email stands in recipients or cc, instead of bcc? / confirmation or reminder BEFORE sending like "are you sure these recipients are not bcc; have you put a delivery notification; etc?
This would partially or totally solve problems for those, who try to use 'send later' addon. Because this tiny 'later' might be enough to "hide" a recipient or something similar. (other addons do not solve by bcc problem...)
Thank you very much, I hope I can find the perfect solution once:)

When internal addresses are used more often than external ones, this addon really simplifies addressing. Wrong recipients are avoided, which adds the advertised security.

My only remark is, that I use two-letter acronyms for recipients, which means I need autocompletion starting with just two letters typed in. Since the addon code defines 5 letters as requirement, I have to manually edit the autocomplete.js and fix that for me. An option defining that limit would be desirable.

This addon is a great tool for people who are quick to send out emails and not always double check that they included the right recipients. It has been a great addition to my thunderbird productivity, and I know there are several features of it that I don't even use - highly recommend it!

This is a great addon for anyone who forgets to double-check (or should be double-checking) who and what they're sending in their emails. This extension worked flawlessly until the release of Thunderbird 45 (as of Secure Addressing v1.6) - the extension now prevents messages from being sent.

This was a really great add-on which I used all the time - until I updated to Thunderbird 45. I had to disable to allow messages to send. A great pity!
