    Is there any way to hide the x-sender when sending an email ? Don't care with mail client as long as it is for windows ;)

    Thanks

    Have you checked the Thunderbird Add-Ons site? They have a Privacy section.

    PD

    yes it does. Or it is gmail.

    I just know that I have a gmail account and a myname@domain.com mail adress. The normal sender is myname@domain.com but the x-sender still is @gmail.com

    Thunderbird Sent Items folder, select a sent message, Other Actions->View Source.

    Viewing the source of the email message sent by Thunderbird to Gmail can help you to confirm "who" is inserting what. It is Gmail inserting that header, likely because you are relaying through Gmail.

    If a Thunderbird user has an email account at A and B they would normally create one Thunderbird account for A (which uses POP|IMAP & SMTP A) and one Thunderbird account for B (which uses POP|IMAP & SMTP B). However, a quick search turns up https://support.google.com/mail/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=22370 which you may want to at least take a look at. Note: giving your provider A login credentials to provider B is beyond foolish.
