When I look at the list of e-mails in my inbox, the first line for each mail shows the subject, while the second line shows the sender - mostly.
For some e-mails, the second line shows “To:” and then my e-mail address. In these cases, the profile picture for these mails also changes to my own picture.
This consistently happens for at least one person regularly sending me e-mails.
I have tried all kinds of settings, but this behavior never changes. I can even see similar behavior in the screenshots in the K9 documentation here:
How do I make K-9 always show the sender?
Thanks in advance for any help!
When the app has determined that you are the sender of a message it won’t display the sender’s address, but the recipient’s address prefixed with “To:”. This should be the case for all messages in the Sent folder.
To figure out whether you are the sender of a message the app compares the ‘From’ address in the email with the email addresses of all identities belonging to the account the message is stored in.
You can see a list of the identities configured in K-9 Mail by going to account settings, then ‘Sending mail > Manage identities’. Does this list contain an identity with the email address of that other person?
Yes, that did it! Thank you so much, this was driving me crazy
You’re welcome. I hope you can enjoy your K-9 Mail experience now
Absolutely! It’s the best e-mail client around.
