(I believe this is taken from the account owners email adress, e.g. email@example.com) Starting in thunderbird 1.5, this feature is no longer working. There are a couple of possibly related bugs dealing with autocompletion, but as far as I can tell, it was never intended to disable this filling in of the default domain: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=265509 https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=244522 Was this change intentional? If it was, can it be restored, perhaps by changing a preference setting? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open compose window 2. Starting typing a name not in any address book (e.g. xyzzy) 3. Actual Results: xyzzy is displayed red Expected Results: firstname.lastname@example.org is displayed
Looks like this must have been a deliberate change. A user pointed me to the prerence setting: mail.identify.default.autocompleteToMyDomain Changing the default value of false to "true" restored the desired behavior
