Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8.0.6) Gecko/20060728 Firefox/1.5.0.6
Build Identifier: version 3 alpha 1 (20060831)

I cut and pasted from a gmail message with rich formatting that included several links with long urls. When first pasted into the Thunderbird compose window the presentation of the HTML looks fine. 

When I sent it (set to Text/HTML) the message displayed cut out the second url, didn't display 3 paragraphs, and turned a fourth paragraph until a hypertext link. 

When I looked at the message in Outlook only the truncated text was displayed, but if looked at View Source the text was still there.

When I sent the message to a gmail account it displayed correctly. 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Copied Rich text with embedded urls from Gmail
2.Pasted into compose window (fyi,pasting was from Clipmate 7.1 build 157)
3.Sent file using text/HTML mode
4.Sent through gmail account via POP

Actual Results:  
1. The display of the sent message DIFFERS from the display BEFORE it was sent.
2. The recipient sees only the truncated HTML message, unless they are using gmail to read the message

Expected Results:  
I expected the HTML to display the same as it did before I sent it and as it was in Gmail. I expected the people to see the entire message and not the truncated message.


I will include attached screen shoots and the complete message source, but here is the html code in message source from the top to the place where it stopped it's incorrect display.

<p>I believe that a company in San Francisco, KSFO,<span>&nbsp; </span>is
practicing religious discrimination and most likely national origin
discrimination as well, based on frequent public comments made by the
employees of the company.</p>
<p>&nbsp;I have recorded multiple comments by the on-air radio hosts, Brian
Sussman and Lee Rogers, insulting people of the Muslim faith and
calling for the death of Muslims, Lebanese and a black man. <a

<p>&nbsp;Based on reading their website, the actual practices of KSFO may
appear to meet the guidelines of the EEOC &#8211; listing jobs in multiple
places, running on the air requests for applications and going to job
fairs. But by the comments of the hosts and the support for those
comments from the management, <b>they have sent a clear message to
possible applicants: &#8220;Muslims need NOT apply.&#8221;</b><span>&nbsp; </span>And
although they have sometimes qualified their comments by saying just
&#8220;fundamentalist Muslims&#8221; are bad, there is a continued drum beat in
their on-air comments to include millions of Muslims who are &#8220;ready to
go jihad&#8221; as potential enemies not to be trusted and killed. (<a

View of message displayed after sending email via text/html

This is the way the message looks (notice how paragraphs are missing and the text of one paragraph was turned into a hyperlink). The text still exists in the message source, but it is NOT displayed in the window or in some email clients.
The URLs links (after the first one) also have 'disappeared' here.

Entire text and HTML code from message source display

This is a text file of the view|message source of the email message after it has been sent. The display goes bad after the first link listed here.
Reporter, does the issue still occur in the latest supported 2.0.0.x / Shredder trunk nightlies?

(1.5.0.x is now end-of-life and the latest supported 2.0.0.x is 2.0.0.16)
