message text all grey after first signature ("--")
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.4+) Gecko/20010927 BuildID: 2001092703 really trivial, but still: the mail client parses plaintext messages for an eventual signature. that is apparently the string "--" followed by a newline (though it doesn't seem to recognize *all* occurrences, but still *some*). from this line until the end of the message, the text is displayed grey instead of black. nevertheless, it's a common practice (not only on mailing lists) to forward multiple mails in one message, separated by some delimiter. in this case, everything from the first signature until the end of the message (including non-signature content) is displayed grey. since parsing for eventual delimiters is hardly possible, the fix would be to check for multiple occurrences of "--"/newline (or whatever criteria are used to determine signatures) and if true display the whole message in black. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1. Search your mailbox for a message with multiple signatures that is displayed as desribed above. Actual Results: message is displayed using grey text from the first signature on Expected Results: whole message should be displayed using black text
Actually, the delimiter is "-- " followed by a newline (note the space). Do these digests use multipart/digest?
Content-Type: text/plain (the ones I'm referring to)
