Hi! I'm experiencing an issue replying to email that's been forwarded to my account.

So, I have an account, tom@some-email-domain.com, defined and I can send/receive email from/at the account just fine. Now, at the "some-domain.com" mail server, I setup email to be forwarded to my account, like this:

tom.blah@some-email-domain.com --- forwards to ---> tom@some-email-domain.com

When I send email to "tom.blah@some-email-domain.com", I receive it in Thunderbird in my "tom@some-email-domain.com" inbox. When I reply to said message, the "From" field shows the original sender's email address and the "To" field shows "tom.blah@some-email-domain.com". As a result, I can't reply to the forwarded message unless I manually set the "From" field to be "tom@some-email-domain.com".

Has anyone else encountered this?

Thanks in advance!

Peace...

In the tom@ account, set up an IDENTITY for the tom.blah@ account name.

Ok, setting up the identity did the trick! Thanks!
