Description

14 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)
Build Identifier: 

When I subscribe to a most reflectors/lists, traffic from the lists contain RFC
2369-compliant headers such as:
  List-Unsubscribe: <mailto:list@host.com?subject=unsubscribe>
However:
1. TB does not normally display these headers, so the user does not generally
know that they exist (and therefore doesn't use them)
2. Even when set to display all headers, these headers do not appear as
clickable links.

Something like the Pegasus approach seems much preferable: whenever a message
contains these headers, Pegasus displays them as clickable links, along with
informational text, so one sees something like:
  To unsubscribe: <clickable link appears here>
and clicking on the link creates the correct mail message to unsubscribe from
the list.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View any e-mail with RFC 2369 headers
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
The headers are not displayed at all in the "Normal" header view, and are not
clickable when displayed in the "All" view.

Expected Results:  
It should present clickable links so that the user can easily unsubscribe/get
help/post and generally use any of the RFC 2369 headers that are present.

Dupe of bug 223129.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.
