Outlook 2010 sends out emails in HTML Only. BTnet creates a text/plain version and copies all the HTML into it making a serious mess.

BTnet should just display the HTML email if there is only one 'part'. Would also be nice to be able to configure preferred format if both are present in emails.

  • I saved an email from Thunderbird sent to me from Outlook2010 prof.

    I'm going to comment out these lines in my_mime.cs. I don't remember why I put them there. I can't remember if it always worked this way or not. I wonder if people are depending on this behavior? But to me, today, it doesn't make sense because as you say, it makes a "serious mess".

            if (comment == null)
            {
                comment = MyMime.extract_comment_text_from_email(mime_message, "text/html");
            }
    
     
  • Does that mean i can do that and it should work?

    I'm assuming you're still experimenting since the bug is still open?

     
  • It's clean html now atleast, but could you just strip the tags or just show it like the html it is?
