If I open a message sent from myself and hit "Reply to all", my own address goes to the "To:" list. If I don't happen to notice and remove it, I receive my own message, what is annoying.
My suggestion is that Thunderbird automatically remove the sender from "To:" list when the message being replied to is also from the sender. Or, at least, that this is included as an option.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open a message sent by myself
2.Hit "Reply to all"
Actual Results:  
Among the recipient addresses, there's my own

Expected Results:  
Message should be sent only to other people
The functionality you request is how it already works, unless the mail is addressed to another address than the one you're replying to. In that case, you can set up an identity for that address, and things will work as you request.

In my case, it doesn't. You can verify it with this procedure:
1.Send a test e-mail to any address other than the one(s) set in your TB account
2.Go to the Sent folder and open the message you just sent
3.Hit "Reply to all"
4.Check if your address appears in the recipient list
Here, it comes as the first "To:"
Could you pls double-check with these steps? Dunno about your platform and OS, maybe it's different...
Emerson, this is fixed in the coming version, TB3.
