Thunderbird appears not to have a message properties function.  But you can see the message details by opening message source in the view menu.  If you look down the details, you will find the from information. 
 
But if you can do it the following way instead, it is much faster and easier.
 
Don't be in the message.  Be on the message in the list.
Open the context menu.  You will find all sorts of items regarding working with the message and other items.  You can see if reply to sender works.with mail from various lists.  I don't have Thunderbird associated with any account I use for list mail.

Judy,

          I don't think there's a way to do this under Groups.io because the actual sender's address is not a part of the From: field.

          If it were, you could use the standard Reply keyboard shortcut, but doing that for a list message replies to the group, not the originating sender.  I believe the only way to reply directly to sender, without also including the list, with ease in most e-mail clients is hitting that Reply to Sender link at the end of messages or digest entries.  That's why that particular link came into existence in the very early days of Groups.io.

           I've never dealt with an e-mailing list where direct replies to originating senders of single messages didn't involve a workaround of some kind as the From: and Reply-To are usually set to the mailing list address.

Hi!

 

Sorry for the late post!

 

I would love to answer all of the responses on this forum one by one but I simply don't have the time. So here I make a bigger message to attempt to respond to everyone at once :)

 

Thanks for the awesome responses! I hope to do much more than this, I think that many methods from Machine Learning / AI can be used in this area.


Questions and answers:

* Will this be released for Firefox as well? Yes, expect to see a release within 24 hours!

* Can I turn off developer mode after I've downloaded the extension? Yes, you should be able to do that.

* What data is being collected? I write about what data I collect and why I collect on the site, please read everything before you download! As said on the website, if you want to get your data removed for some reason, send your extension id to oliver.edholm@... and I'll fix that ASAP. If there's some site you don't want to get your browsing data collected from, you can start a Guest / Incognito window for that browsing session. 

* When I unzip the file, the extension folder is inside the unzipped folder! Thanks to everyone who pointed this out, will fix!

 


Re: new dropbox rules

Gerardo Corripio
 

Do you guys know if when one goes to, let’s say my Amazon Tablet, and I sign out of its Dropbox, Dropbox automatically deletes the device which one signed out of? I went into via Safari on my iPhone, to Dropbox.com/Security/Devices, and my tablet I don’t seeit there. I only see my Laptop, Iphone and Android, thus if someday I were to get an Ipad,noproblem: justsign out of my Android device,having the 3rd spacefor an Ipad, or other futuregadgetI’dget, with which to use Dropbox with.

Speaking ofwhich, anyone have invite linksfor Dropbox, toget maybe a bit more of Dropbox space? I invited my Dad, but no extra space was given at my end, nor at his! My current Dropbox space is at almost 9GB, wanting to get at least 12GB.

Asunto: Re: [nvda] new dropbox rules

 

Firstly no it does not effect shared folders.

 

Iff you have machines linked daily, they will stay linked.

 

But if you for any reason need to reformat, or something you will not be

able to link till your linked devices are cleared.

 

If you need to use more than 3 units at one time, and for a basic user

its highly unlikely you should need many units, I have a few suggestions.

 

1.  while a real pain, buying an upgrade to your account may be the

easiest option.

 

2.  you can of course use the website for unlimited devices its all the

linked client deals.

 

I suggest you view your devices, any machines with new profiles on

accounts, reformats, xp and other wise, well the older units will exist

but be inactive.

 

You may need to make other accounts for extra machines if you really

need that.

 

To be honest, if you are really using more then 3 units daily, and don't

want to pay for dropbox storage space, you could buy google storage space.

 

While its quite a lot for over 2tb of storage, a 100-200mb storage space

doesn't cost that much.

 

On icloud its a little more but 200 mb is still only 10 bucks, dropbox

is 9 bucks for 1tb though.

 

To be honest if it is part of your work and or something you really use,

I'd try to stomach all the stuff that went with it and get the full

office 360, that can be 100 or so a year but you get office, the space,

and basically the skype version of your cellphone plan from any previder.

 

There is no reason for anyone to need more than 3 devices, 2 at most.

 

If you really need to sync things and while you will not be able to use

a credit card, it may be easier to buy resilio home pro for 50 bucks,

you will need the space to sync folders but you can supposedly selective

sync the folders and share keys about.

 

How many of the devices are daily uses, and how many devices do you need

synced.

 

If its 5 fine, but I doubt its really that.

 

For saldom used devices, maybe its easier to unlink everything bar the

most used devices your phone and at least 1 pc instance, then simply

transfer about.

 

I have another pc on win7 about, but I don't really need to sync that

with dropbox as such for what I use it for though I guess I can do that

I just have to remember to police my device and session lists thats not

a real issue if you think about it.

 

To be honest, I'd like an ability to have a device if not used in say 6

months to a year to be automatically kulled from the linked device list.

 

In my mind its completely unlikely you will need to use more than 3

units, certainly a laptop and a phone maybe but not both.

 

For me, I don't know if I would bother linking my phone to dropbox for

the reason I really don't need anything of that on my phone to do

anything with.

 

I have 1 unit and 1 only on client.

 

Knowing what dropbox is now, I do think if I actually got into a

business, I'd gofor a 5 user personal or business pack of office linked

things rather than dropbox, or dropbox 1tb maybe I'd do that thats still

quite cheap I guess.

Marcio,

Interesting.   I generally read my Gmail via the web interface, but just tried doing the same through Outlook 2016, the latest version of Thunderbird.

Under Outlook 2016, when I activate the Reply to Sender link it actually causes a reply message to be opened in my default web browser for that Gmail account (which also happens to be logged in to Google for other reasons).

Under Thunderbird, it instantly does exactly what I'd previously described, opens a compose Window in Thunderbird with To: and Subject: prepopulated, while also opening a separate Thunderbird tab.

I'll have to try this under WLM 2012 on my other machine later, as I don't have the pertinent Gmail account set up on this one and don't want to bother doing so.

That key combination only works in certain programs and I don't know if it is supported in any programs any more. 
 
There are different ways to get the address and the exact procedure varies according to program.  We now know that the person who originally asked the question is using Thunderbird.  I don't use Thunderbird, though I have it on my machine.  I may have found a way when just looking at the program. 

I moved to a message in the list, open the context menu, and look through it.  There is a reply to sender item in that menu.  You can see if it works for list mail.

Re: dropbox rules sharing links

 

Very appreciative, Shaun.
I really think this must be spreaded as much as possible because as I never got an official Dropbox email telling me about it, I'd believe many people didn't get one either.

Re: How to contact list members off list?

Hi, you are right in some cases.

 

On some lists with Jaws you can press Jawskey-shift-r, and the sender’s individual e-mail will come up.  It seems to work in groups.io, but not on the nfbnet lists.  I am using Outlook 2010 with Windows 10.

Judy,

          I don't think there's a way to do this under Groups.io because the actual sender's address is not a part of the From: field.

          If it were, you could use the standard Reply keyboard shortcut, but doing that for a list message replies to the group, not the originating sender.  I believe the only way to reply directly to sender, without also including the list, with ease in most e-mail clients is hitting that Reply to Sender link at the end of messages or digest entries.  That's why that particular link came into existence in the very early days of Groups.io.

           I've never dealt with an e-mailing list where direct replies to originating senders of single messages didn't involve a workaround of some kind as the From: and Reply-To are usually set to the mailing list address.

Re: How to contact list members off list?

 

Hi,
Well I tried it just for giggles and it worked perfectly, except for the fact that, when I tried to close the new message window, my Thunderbird hmm crashed completely and I had to restart it.
What happens when you hit this link is as simple as that: A new message opens so you can type in with the "to" field being who sent this message and the "Private:" prefixing the subject.

Actually, if I open the context menu on the reply to sender link and then click on the compose email to choice then it does open a new email and does populate the to: field with the sender's email address. 


But still clicking on the reply to sender link does nothing.

Dan,

           Are you, by chance, using webmail?   Mailto: links won't necessarily work smoothly with some webmail.  If you bring up the context menu and copy that link, it is a mailto: link.

           It will have the word mailto: immediately followed by the sender's e-mail address, followed by a question mark, followed by what will be put in the message subject automatically.  You can snag the actual e-mail address that way if you're using webmail that does not respond to a mailto: link.

           I haven't encountered an actual e-mail client like Thunderbird, WLM, Outlook, etc., in a very long time that doesn't respond to a mailto: link by opening a compose window with the To: address and Subject: prepopulated based on what the link has in it.

Just for the fun of it, I tried, and it does work in Outlook.
