(no joke) Date: Fri, 26 Mar 2004 16:22:11 -0800 (PST) From: Elizabeth Stewart <email@example.com> To: Rishi Chopra <firstname.lastname@example.org> Is there some way to have this information included on reply-to emails? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Reply to an email; 2. Look for the header to be included as part of the text 3. Actual Results: No header visible Expected Results: Allow a user to specify whether the header is included.
This is a feature that should be standard, I think. But in the mean time, here are some instructions on how you can make it add a reply header to your reply emails... Open notepad & paste the following code: // Change the reply header // 0 - No Reply-Text // 1 - "[Author] wrote:" // 2 - "On [date] [author] wrote:" // 3 - User-defined reply header. Use the prefs below in conjunction // with this: user_pref("mailnews.reply_header_type", 2); The important line is the last line. The lines with the // are just comments. Do file>save as. The file name should be user.js & "save as type" should say all files or it may not work right. Choose the path C:\Documents and Settings\yourname\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\default\unique_file_name.slt (this is the same folder that the prefs.js file is located in). You may need to close & re-open Thunderbird.
Is there some way to use option 3 to construct a custom header identical to the 'forward' header?
There might be. I don't know the coding for that though. Sorry.
