So I add them to the "plain text only" list of domains. But why is this nessisary? If I don't use any bold (not counting text encoding of such with ** // and etc), justification, tables or anything else that would require html formatting, why does it have to be sent in html? Note! This would only be an option in addition to "send as plain text only", "send as html only" and "send as both html and plain text". Which would mean send in plain text if no formatting. If there is formatting, it would send it html and plain text. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Expected Results: 1. Write message 2. Send 3a. No formatting? Send as plain text. 3b. Formatting? Send as HTML.
that is what we do, afaik.
(In reply to comment #1) > that is what we do, afaik. In my experience, yes, unless all the recipients are listed in the Address Book as "prefers [actually meaning, 'able to receive'] HTML." In recent builds, even bolding and italicization are sufficient to count as "formatting." (And we get complaints about the automatic conversion. The worst part is that if an <img> is included in the message, that is inexplicably not considered "formatting" and the image is dropped entirely. Bug 180997 is about the failure to convert embedded images (and other files) to attachments for plain text mail.) Mike Fedyk, do you have a specific example you can point to where the automatic conversion to plain does not occur?
Actually, I was about to mark this bug invalid since I did a test and it worked like I wanted it to. Send to myself without formatting -- Plain text Send to myself with bolded text -- Plain text & HTML Sorry for reporting before testing. You can do what you will with this bug report. Mike
Oh, Before I file another bug... What do you think of changing the default to "Plain text & HTML" by default?
heh, that's an issue that's been much debated over the years, and I'm not inclined to revisit it :-)
