1) So compose an email where the only formatting is <p> </p> and nothing else html wise (well appart from a few <br>). 2) send This is send as plaintext even though send as hmlt + text is selected. if you change one letter to be bold , it will be sent as html+text Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; rv:8.0a1) Gecko/20110808 Thunderbird/8.0a1 Filling as UNCO. as this might be a duplicate and Joe probably knows better than I do.
Send format auto-detect works like this: If the message can be down-converted to plaintext and that conversion is lossless then it will be converted to plaintext. In the case of just <p tags this is true, there is no loss. TB makes that decision for you. The only way to defeat it is to use Options>>Format and select a send mode there. (this must be done on every composition) Bug 136502 wants a way to avoid the auto-detection by pref.
