Chance is you have more than one email address. Many Internet users do. Usually one private and one work related email, or a private and public one. Some users, especially webmasters and developers can have lots more than that but if you got more than one you might have experienced a situation where you send someone an email from the wrong email address, say a private email from a work account or vice verse.
PrivateID Reloaded for Thunderbird 3 has been designed to warn the user before the email is send on its way. The extension maintains a list of private email IDs and address books that it will compare all emails with.
It is possible to specify email addresses or strings like domain names to add all of the emails that match the string to the list automatically.
A warning will be displayed if a recipient of a private email is not found in the address books that have been added to the extension’s preferences.
It is still possible to send the email to the recipients but the warning gives the sender the option to rethink that step. It is for instance possible to opt out and change the email account that is used to send out the email.
PrivateID Reloaded can be downloaded from the Mozilla Thunderbird extension repository. The add-on is compatible with Thunderbird 1.5 to 3.0.x.
