Whether I use Thunderbird on Windows or Postbox (a "fork" of Thunderbird) on my Mac, my client displays messages as having come from "Chuck Hursch via EV" for example. In the message source, it's the To: field, not the From: field, that is "Electric Vehicle Discussion List." Are you sure you've got T'bird set to display the right fields?
For reference, my version of Thunderbird is 24.3.0 on Windows 7, and Postbox 3.0.11 on Mac OS 10.8.5... Best regards, -- Cal Frye, www.calfrye.com /Be an Internet Sceptic/ Stop. Think.
