I don't use Windows but I do use Thunderbird.  I'm puzzled by your problem.

If the email has a reply-to address, why is your friend trying to type 
the address in?  Just hit "Reply" and any decent MUA will use the 
reply-to address correctly.

Thunderbird displays addresses which it doesn't know in red, but it 
doesn't stop you sending to them.
