Another thing I just noticed that makes TB annoyingly unusable for me - but
perhaps I just did not find the right switch:
You may have noticed that my mailing list account refers
to "lists@..." whereas my normal account
is "mfeilner@..." I keep these separate, dor several reasons.
However, in Kontact I can simply edit the "From" field while writing a mail -
I even have another identity connected to that. But in Thunderbird I would
need a complete account. Since I merge incoming mails for my different
accounts into on big dump and sort them later on with a central, rather long
sieve script, I prefer the way kontact handles this. This is not the only
example where I need this: Yes I still have a catchall on some of my
domains - I need this for quick testing or other stuff.
I can add new identities, but I can't find an obvious way to edit the "From"
entry in Thunderbird. Correct?
Another useful feature of kontact that's really better.
