Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; fr; rv:1.9.2.8) Gecko/20100722 Ant.com Toolbar 2.0.1 Firefox/3.6.8
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.8) Gecko/20100802 Thunderbird/3.1.2

In a new message, Thunderbird always displays all kind of addressees with or without a presence of a mail or a newsgroup account in the user's profile. For example, if you hadn't create a newsgroup account, Thunderbird displays items "Newsgroup:" and "Followup-To:"
Thunderbird must be smarter, taking account of the configuration and proposing only types of addressees needed.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Create a new profile
2.In this profile, create a mail account
3.Create a new mail
4.Click on "To:"
Actual Results:  
Thunderbird displays all kinds of addressees (To:, Cc:, Reply-To:, Newsgroup:, Followup-To:) even if certains are unusable without a correct type of account.

Expected Results:  
Depends of the configuration:
Account          | Display
-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------
mail only        | To:, Cc:, Bcc:, Reply-To:
newsgroup only   | Newsgroup:, Followup-To:
mail + newsgroup | To:, Cc:, Bcc:, Reply-To:, <separator>, Newsgroup:, Followup-To:
-----------------+---------------------------------------------------------

The current display is a source of confusion for users.

Bonjour Ludovic

First of all, nice to see my enhancement proposal accepted.

I totally agree, Thunderbird now needs some code to implement this awesome improvement. ;)

But I couldn't code that by myself because I'm not a developer.

Anybody interested ?
