I got tired of adding accounts ( that rarely get any emails anyway ) on Thunderbird but it lets me email with the respective account identity (name, email address).
You could also try getting someone to whip up something minimal but functional in perl. You might try writing a message to comp.lang.perl saying a friend of yours wrote one in Ruby and that Perl couldn't match it in size or efficiency. ;) Of course, that's kinda dishonest and a bit trollish, so you could just plainly ask them how to do it.
If you're using thunderbird, then you can add more identities to that account and select the appropiate identitity to send mail from.
You will allways have to configure all the addresses where you want to send mail from. That probably will not disappear.
The problem I'm having is that often people send email to an address and I reply from the wrong address! In other words, they send email to email@example.com and I reply from firstname.lastname@example.org. Not that I don't have the correct address set up, it's just that I forget to change the 'account' button.
Now it's not a major hassle that people know I own both sites, but it's not very professional. Does anyone know of a way that I can set Outlook to automatically reply from the address that the email was addressed to?
My webmail system does this automatically, but I can't get Outlook to do it... go figure.
but I can't get Outlook to do it...
I would have thought that there was a way to get it to examine the 'to' address and use that to reply.
