Description

9 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; de; rv:1.9.1.5) Gecko/20091102 Firefox/3.5.5 GTB5
Build Identifier: Thunderbird 3.0 RC1 build1

A message composed in HTML looses a lot of the HTML formatting.

More over: One has to create the main text in a smaller font size in order to have the correct font size upon receive.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create new message
2. use various HTML formatting, including smileys
3. send message
Actual Results:  
- italic: OK
- bold: OK
- underline:  NOK  - lost
- font size: NOK - partially changed
  (Message body and part of signature font size changed 
   in comparison to main part of the added HTML signature)
- smiley: NOK - graphical smiley changed to characters, eg. :-)
- font colors and font style lost (from signature)


Expected Results:  
proper HTML formatting

The change appears on both:

a) the message at the receivers end

b) the message in the senders 'sent message box'

- before send
- after send (received and sent-box messages are identical)

Rolf,
Please check that your view setting are set to 
View | Message body as... | Original HTML
and not "simple HTML"

Hi Joe

You are right.

Never saw that there.
Expected this in the preference view.
That's where I also looked first after your comment.

NOTE: It might be helpful for other people to either make a note in the preference, move it to preference or have this setting in preference as well (So having it in 2 places.)
