I want to send you a contribution but rather go into paypal separately myself. Who do I send it to once I'm on paypal? Thanks so much.

Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is an excellent Add-On, and does just what it claims. There is a fair amount of customisation too, so for example you can associate different colours with different email accounts, and can sort (up/down) on the listed email accounts that TB presents. I had a couple of questions, and the developer Janek, responded straight away. 1st class!

Excellent unless you also use TB as a newsreader. Then, it prevents you from writing a NEW message to Usenet.

Fantastic Rated 5 out of 5 stars

After sending out three emails with wrong identity in a row, I decided to search for a solution. This addon is just perfect. Thunderbird should adopt such options in their client directly.

Good catch! Rated 4 out of 5 stars

At the moment I am using a shared computer in my office and TB has a bunch of issues with multiple accounts. This one should have been already included and it is good that you spotted this and took action.

Real Identity Chooser Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Best approach on forcing users to select identity on your email. I've had problems before on sending emails to my boss using my personal email address and this solved it. Two thumbs up!

Good to force using the right identity Rated 5 out of 5 stars

This is a useful add on. My problem was that when sending a picture from within Picasa 3 it always selected 1 of my 4 identities and it was always the wrong one. I could not find out how to reset this kind of default account (happens to be my business account) to my private account. This add on now allows me to select the correct account. Only problem remaining is that I have to erase the auto-signature of my business account - all the rest is fine. Great add on!

Wahnsinn Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Habe die Extension schon lange in Benutzung und heute erst gemerkt, dass es eine weitere tolle Funktion gibt. Es lässt sich eine Sendewarnung einstellen! Sehr nützlich für alte oder "geheime" Accounts. Ich z. B. habe ein paar IMAP-Accounts, die nur der Archivierung von alten Mails dienen - von denen will ich natürlich keine Mails schreiben, auch wenn ich auf eine dort gespeichert Mail mit einem Klick antworten will.

Excellent add-on, does exactly what is advertised. In a recent Thunderbird update I found that some drop-down boxes (related to reply-to-list) no longer offered an identity choice, but I contacted the developer and he provided a bug fix for testing within 24 hours. That version is now available for download as 1.6.4.

Excellent, great support Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I regularly use 6 email addresses so I was upset when with one of the latest TB iterations the previous addon I was using to handle then stopped working.
In fact it has turned out to be a blessing in disguise as, when I explored the alternatives, I discovered Identity Chooser which does the job so well and, I have to say, stylishly.
On top of it I have been experiencing some conflict with another addon, and Janek, the developer, has been unfailingly (and rapidly) helping me through the various options to get the most out of IC.
Five stars out of five!

Zwingend einfach Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Dadurch, dass man schon vor der Aktion gezwungen ist, die Identität auszuwählen, kann nie etwas schief gehen.
Da es hier keine richtige Automatik gibt wie im Konkurrenz-Add-on, sind Fehler weitgehend ausgeschlossen.
Automatik heißt ja nicht immer: intelligenter.
Danke an den Entwickler.

Simple ad efficient solution. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great tool! Just what I needed.
Had a little glitch when trying to post to newsgroups, but it seems to have disapeared after I turned it on and off a couple of times.
The author was realy responsive when I emailed him about this issue, also.
Maybe this could be part of thunderbird itself?...

Very useful for everybody who uses more than one e-mail address. Intuitive and easy to use.

Very good support from developer when some minor bugs appear.

Does exactly what it claims to do and gets me around a recurring annoyance!

Well done sir...

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Valuable add-on keeps one from sending those embarrassing e-mails from the wrong account, when replying, forwarding, or creating a new message! Forces user to choose the sender from a list of all defined accounts, whenever any of the above actions are invoked either by mouse or by keyboard shortcut. Options allow user to select which actions and which accounts will prompt for a sender.

Developer is very responsive to support requests. This user had problems which the developer spent time and worked hard to identify--and the problem turned out to be a conflict with another extension due to circumstances that most other users will never see.

Developer also willing to add a feature requested by this user to make available the same capability when "Edit as New" is invoked. When that is complete, my rating will be five stars.

Edit for version 1.6.5 beta on 2012-07-21: As promised, I am increasing my rating to five stars, now that the developer has added the ability to have IC triggered by the Edit As New command! This has been the missing feature/weak-link for me!

Nützliches Addon, schneller support. Danke!
Mit Thunderbird 8 braucht man Version 1.6.1 und funktioniert alles wieder.

Useful addon, fast support. Thank you!
With Thunderbird 8 you will need version 1.6.1 of the addon and everything is fine again.

great addon, was searching since a while for a solution to choose the identity _prior_ to opening the mail editor and finally found it with this one. Version 1.6 had a little issue which was perfectly solved in 1.6.1. Really quick support! Thank you, Janek!! (ich war mal so frei, meine Bewertung auch für Nicht-Teutonen lesbar zu halten ;)

I absolutley understand frustration when sending e-mail from wrong account. Been there. This add-on is a saver. I like colouring feature so I can see visually which kind of account is used. And developer is very kind to help with issues within a minutes. Superb service!
