Steps to reproduce:

I checked my emails. 

Actual results:

I saw that two emails were ostensibly payments from the same person for items purchased on eBay. This seemed odd but on further inspection, I noticed that many recent payments were listed as being from "D...w via PayPal".

Expected results:

The Thunderbird "From" column should give the correct name of the person who has paid via Paypal not the same, incorrect name in several cases. Please see attached file. I have blanked out item numbers and the full name of the apparent buyer but you can see that "D...w via PayPal" appears in every case whereas every case relates to different buyers.

What does the message "raw text" source say for the fields "From" and "Sender"?

View source of the message (Ctrl + U), then check what the header row starting "From:" sais
