Indeed look at my headers.
I never use eircom as an SMTP.
On thunderbird I fetch all my mail from a box on the internet. My own
server at home fetches email from about 10 domains and forwards a copy
Then when I compose the "From" in Thunderbird is a drop down list
I have 3 different SMTP I use. A public one (if abroad or at internet
cafe I might VPN to home and use it), An O2 Mobile one and the "office"
SMTP in work. A simple matter in Thunderbird Tools Account settings to
swap the SMTP used, if I need to. I rarely change it.
