Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-GB; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5
Build Identifier: Thunderbird 3.0b4

Whenever I check mail on my gmail account set up to use IMAP, and I want to read an e-mail someone has sent me, the From and To both say the e-mail address or contact from the last corporate/school/organisation e-mail I've looked at (i.e. if I get an e-mail from PayPal or my School).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Look at an e-mail from anyone that isn't just an individual
2. Look at an e-mail on a gmail IMAP account from an individual (have your mum or a friend send you an e-mail)
3. Notice that the From and To say the e-mail address of the first e-mail you looked at, regardless of if that e-mail was attached to a different account or if that e-mail was in your gmail account.
Actual Results:  
After I performed the above steps, I got an e-mail read window which showed a From/To that both said an organisation's e-mail.  

Expected Results:  
I expected to get a window saying that the e-mail was from the individual I was communicating with to my gmail e-mail address.
I think it's a dup but I don't understand all of what you are saying. Could you provide a screenshot of the issue you are seeing ?
