All of my email ever has come from thunderbird, and it never sends out that.

Thunderbird does have a bad habit of interpolating and remembering 
typos, however, so if you at some point in time type in 
general at, there is an entry in the Thunderbird address book 
called "collected addresses".  It may have your general @ classiccmp 
entry and clearing out crap from there was a recent exercise for me.

Also when I go to enter an address there is an attempt to match an 
address to what I'm typing that  had gotten messed up from typos that I 
had had, and it took an act of congress to find out how to clear out 
that crap.
