This becomes a problem when, for example, multiple email forwarding addresses are being coalesced into a single physical address, and it is overkill to give each forwarding address its own Mozilla account (think home/academic usage rather than business usage). The problem is trying to send an outbound email with a selected forwarding address in the From: line. Simple solution: Auto-completion rather than a pull-down list, allowing the user to override the selections. Harder solution: Maintaining a list of known aliases for each physical account and adding them to the selection list. Caveat: The feature makes it easier to spoof the From: line on an email address -- with that in mind, the second solution is better than the first. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:
