Linux (1999-07-28-15 M8.5) Mac (1999-07-28-14 M8.5) Win (1999-07-28-15 M8.5) steps: 1. Create a mail message tha contains the following: Take a look at: http://slip/projects/seamonkey/mail/admin/m85_mail_test.html 2. Send it to yourself 3. View this message Actual result: When I view this message, I am NOT able to click on the HTTP link and display the linked page Expected result: If I were to create this mail message from Nova, I would be able to click on this HTTP link and open the page in Nova. So I expect to be able to create this link in seamonkey and be able to click on the HTTP link and display the page. This feature may NOT be implemented yet. But want to make sure it will be.
I don't believe that rhp has implemented this for html compose window yet. Is this planned?
reassigning to rhp. Rich, I think you may have been working on this.
This was actually a feture of the send side of Messenger in 4.x. If you look at the HTML source for one of these messages, you will see the <A HREF... to make the text a link. So, I have to figure out where this is being done...I believe that it was done in Composer for 4.x, but I'm not sure. Maybe jefft can remember. If not, I will dig it up. - rhp
No, this is a feature in libmime. Think of the plain text email message. When spitting out the html for display we need to have the "http://..." (may be other protocl, such as mailto:... ftp://) turned into a link. May need to pay special attention to html mail message.
Actually, this isn't the case for HTML messages. If you go in an hack an HTML mail message in 4.x and just add "http://www.foo.com", then display the message, it will not be link-afied. (unless it's plain text and I've worked with that code pretty much to make it more link friendly) In 4.x, when you composed HTML messages and they got sent, the HTML to make them a link got added somewhere in the send operation...I'm just not sure where and how. - rhp
I see. So, for html we add <HREF ..> before we send for plain text we add the link when we parse the message.
Yes...I just don't see the calls to add the link in the 4.x libmsg so I have a feeling this was a special hack in Composer for mail messages. - rhp
I fixed this....we now scan messages on the send side, which is what we did for 4.x. - rhp
