Love this add-on. It frequently helps me avoid addressing mistakes.

I've posted a updated and fixed version which is compatible with Thubderbird 60.2.1 at the link below.

Just a warning: ALWAYS be careful about installing plugins from other websites! (You can open the plugin up and compare it with the original if you'd like to verify the changes I've made.)

If you have other fixes/changes to add then let me know on github.

This is a great add-on but the tip for making it compatible with 60.3.0 didn't work for me. I hope the author updates it.

I don't know what is not compatible but I "simply" do these steps to be able to activate/install it. Everything works well up to now. But be careful as this affects all add-on installation.

1. Tools -> Options -> Config Editor... (bottom right corner)
2. Right-click anywhere in the list -> New -> Boolean
3. Type "extensions.checkCompatibility.60.3" (without the quotes) and replace 60.3 by the current version of your Thunderbird
4. click OK then choose "false"
5. restart Thunderbird, the plugin is active again and you can install any add-on

Repeat these steps every new version of Thunderbird

Really useful add-on. Thank you.

Developer: Following the recent update to tb 60.x I've patched your add-on to make it compatible with Gecko 58 (it's so useful we couldn't do without it). Please contact me if you would like me to send you the patch, as I can't find hosting details on GitHub etc.

I think it's a great add-on but was wondering if anyone could update it to work with 60.x?

I was very disappointed when I found out that the confirmation dialog box only displays the "Display Name" and the "Email address" from the address book entry. It doesn't display the "Organization" (or similar) which was the whole reason that I wanted this addon - i.e. to show me the organisations that the recipients are affiliated with before sending an email.

In other words, it only shows what you can already see in the email itself.

This would be much better if there were options to control which address book fields were displayed in the confirmation dialog box.

My workaround is to always include the organisation name in the "Display name" in the address book entry so that it shows up in both the standard auto completion and in the confirmation dialog box.

The addon's auto-completion doesn't seem to work anywhere near as well as the standard auto completion but with the workaround mentioned above it probably doesn't matter.

The idea is good, but implementation is irritating. You can set it as you want, in any way, but recipient suggestion only works if you have very few similar addresses. In many cases it doesn't work so you have to write the entire address manually or picking it from the address book. And address suggestion is very important to get things done quickly.

Very useful, great addon. But could Mr Hiroya Matsuba take some development ideas into consideration, please?
Sometimes I have to send an email to many recipients who do not have to see each others email addresses. (It is not a spam. E.g. I have to inform residents of a house about sg, and their emails are in email lists) Of course I should use bcc, but rarely I forget it, and in these cases it is extremely embarrassing. Your addon helps me to think, but perhaps there would be some easy development options?
E.g.: possibility of input some external emails (not domain) / confirmation window only in case of these external emails / confirmation only in case of specific email adresses (list of) / managing exceptions somehow / confirmation if a specific email stands in recipients or cc, instead of bcc? / confirmation or reminder BEFORE sending like "are you sure these recipients are not bcc; have you put a delivery notification; etc?
This would partially or totally solve problems for those, who try to use 'send later' addon. Because this tiny 'later' might be enough to "hide" a recipient or something similar. (other addons do not solve by bcc problem...)
Thank you very much, I hope I can find the perfect solution once:)

When internal addresses are used more often than external ones, this addon really simplifies addressing. Wrong recipients are avoided, which adds the advertised security.

My only remark is, that I use two-letter acronyms for recipients, which means I need autocompletion starting with just two letters typed in. Since the addon code defines 5 letters as requirement, I have to manually edit the autocomplete.js and fix that for me. An option defining that limit would be desirable.

This addon is a great tool for people who are quick to send out emails and not always double check that they included the right recipients. It has been a great addition to my thunderbird productivity, and I know there are several features of it that I don't even use - highly recommend it!

This is a great addon for anyone who forgets to double-check (or should be double-checking) who and what they're sending in their emails. This extension worked flawlessly until the release of Thunderbird 45 (as of Secure Addressing v1.6) - the extension now prevents messages from being sent.

This was a really great add-on which I used all the time - until I updated to Thunderbird 45. I had to disable to allow messages to send. A great pity!

This app seems to prevent all email sending on Thunderbird 45.0

This addOn discharges its core functionality well, and it has some good extra features. However, if used with the SendLater addition, one can get various Thunderbird prompts twice. Still, this AddOn can work as something of a replacement for SendLater.

Thanks for your tool -- it runs fine with me.
As I have partners I send S/MIME encrypted emails, and others I send PGP encrypted emails, I'd like to get another check in your add-on, which warns me, if e.g. S/MIME signature and PGP encryption are both active. This causes TB to send it only S/MIME signed as Enigmail and S/MIME are conflicting.
Best regards and thanks in advance

I really like this plugin. The attachment feature is great, and the ability to see recipients that I have never emailed in red is a life saver. The ability to see the Title, Department and Company of recipients is super cool as well. I have nothing negative to say basically. There is a similar add-in for Outlook called "SafeSend" but Secure Addressing simply has more useful features I think. Go and download this add-in now!
