The main point of the addon is that it *prevents* you accidentally CCing
a lot of people at once. ISTR you can set it to warn you if, for example,
you include more than 3 people in TO or CC, and asks whether you meant to
use BCC instead.  You can override the warning, but if you didn't mean to
do that - or think better of it - it will change them all to BCC.

It's a great addon. I'm also looking out for a replacement.

Agreed, especially for Outlook users... :-)

Tbird's List will not fill the address fields until you have selected from To, CC and BCC. IMO, this is a pretty good safeguard against erroneous CC.

But mistakes do happen....
