Forwarding a plain text message from an account set to HTML compose should either (1) produce a plain text composition window, or (2) an HTML composition window with the message in the proper format (fixed width). Sometimes, that doesn't work though: e.g., on bugzilla messages. They are forwarded as content-type=text/html, but there's no formatting applied to them. To reproduce: 1. Set your bugzilla account to compose HTML 2. Selecte a bugzilla message 3. Forward Inline Actual result: The message is sent as is, with content-type=text/html and <html> </html> around the message. Expected result: sent as content-type=text or, if sent as html, with proper formatting. Linux build 2000.01.24.08
Rich, maybe for you?

the current logic is the following (since last night): if my account say compose in HTML, message forwarded inline will give an HTML compose window, whaterver the type of the original message. However, we are not inserting plain text in fix width font (same for reply or reply all) if my account say plain text, plain text message are forwarded in plain text, and HTML message are converted in plain text. Rich, Phil, do we want to do more than that?
