How To Reply Using Email Client

I recently received an email to a Trashmail address with "undisclosed recipients" in the "To" field.
When I click Reply the recipients address shows without any Trashmail inclusions, i.e. it will not go via Trashmail.

Is there a format that I can use in my recipients "To:" field to force this email to go via my Trashmail address.

I'm using the latest Mozilla Thunderbird.

For the moment there is only the possibility that in this case you reply with the web form of your TrashMail address.

Thank you for that.
Since posting I found an email that allowed me to reply via my Trashmail address, these are my observations.
The senders address was (not real) a1b2@gmail.com,
When I clicked reply this address was entered in my email client's "To:" field: mytrashaddress.reply.a1b2_at_gmail.com@wegwerfmail.net

So the question now is if I compose an email and send it to poobah.reply.a1b2_at_gmail.com@wegerfmail.net and providing I have the email address poobah@wegwermail.net, will that email go to a1b2@gmail.com and show my email address as poobah@wegwerfmail.net ?

I hope that makes sense, a little too much champers and red tonight - German wheat beer is great too, had that last night.

In the past, when I used Mozilla Thunderbird's "Reply to Sender" feature, it entered an address something like the one ("mytrashaddress.reply.a1b2_at_gmail.com@wegwerfmail . net") you mention in the "To" field.

However, currently (in Thunderbird 15.0.1, portable [PortableApps] version), that no longer works for me.

Now, "Reply to Sender" just enters the real E-mail address, such as "a1b2@gmail . com"

I don't know for how long this has been the case.

Does anyone else experience the same problem with Thunderbird?

Thank you.

Appears to have been fixed in 16.0.1 but I noticed it does not happen with all emails.

This seems to be a Thunderbird problem.
