POP: Plain text editor omits msg body when replying to html msg
Build Date & Platform Bug Found: Mac Seamonkey commercial build (1999-07-12-08) installed on PPC 9600 OS 8.5.1 Win32 Seamonkey commercial build (1999-07-12-08) installed on win32 Win98 Overview Description: Under POP, when using the plain text editor to reply to a HTML message, the message does not quote the message body. It quotes the message header only. This problem occurs on Win32, PPC, and Linux. The behavior is the same on all platforms. Steps to Reproduce: 0) Configure your Pref50.js to use a plain text editor user_pref("mail.identity.id1.compose_html", true); 1) Start Apprunner 2) Open Messenger through the component bar or task menu 3) Select a rich text message The message should display in the message pane (Note: if you do not have a HTML message to quote, use Nova to send you a rich text message then retrieve and select the rich text message) 4) Click on the reply button The message header is quoted but is missing body is missing. Actual Results: It fails to quote the message boday. The header is the only part quoted.\ Expected Results: The entire message should be quoted in the the reply. Additional Information: Under IMAP, the behavior is different. It quotes the message but adds extra delimiters (">") to the first line of quoted text. I will file a separate bug.
Summary: POP: Plain text editor omits msg body when replying to html msg → POP: Plain text editor omits msg body when replying to html msg

reassign to Rich
I think this is conversion related. Will investigate. - rhp

Basically, these both boil down to a problem with HTML - plain/text conversion. This API is changing to adhear to the new stream converter interface and when that happens, you will start seeing bodies. - rhp *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 10970 ***
