Fwd: Re: Fwd: Re: printing problem (no remote images)

Hi Albrecht,

Sorry for the late answer. I checked with my colleague again the problematic message in question. The issue is as follows: The message is a plain text message (outlook) with an outlook attachment. The attachment is HTML only. Balsa does unfortunately not mark clearly real attachments. If an email is consisting a plain text part and the same part in HTML (outlook settings are prefer plain text and add HTML) I have two attachments - plain text and HTML. In case that an HTML attachment is added I have two HTML attachments with a different numbering. So you have to know which numbering belongs to what. IMHO this a general problem in Balsa with how attachments are handled.

Thanks a lot for you incredible and very valuable/useful work for the Balsa community. I am struggling always with compiling so I can't test your improvements. Debian is always slow with providing updated packages for the current Debian version for Balsa. Sorry.

Again, thank you for your work.

Best regards,
John Jack Doe

Hi Jack,

sorry, it took a little longer to look into this issue due to a huge amount of real-life (for €) work…

I reworked the display of multipart/alternative messages, please see issue #75 <https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/balsa/-/issues/75> and the branch 75-html-display-printing. It /should/ fix your printing issues, at least it works for a variety of messages in my mailbox:

- If a second “view” of the same message is opened, exactly the same selection of html or plain parts is displayed. - As long as at least one instance of a message is visible, Balsa remembers if external content referenced in HTML parts has been downloaded, i.e. when opening a 2nd view and the external content has been loaded, Balsa will /not/ ask, but just loads it from the cache. Unfortunately, it is not possible to store this information permanently, or to query the Webkit cache, so when a message is re-opened after all views have been closed, Balsa will ask again. No idea how I could fix this (easily). - Printing a message prints exactly the selection of html or plain parts and external contents as in the view from which the print operation has been initiated. No extra configuration for printing (3rd tab of the print dialogue) is required any more.

It would be great if you could give it a try, and share your impressions.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Albrecht,

Recently I received an email containing a plain text part and a html part. The contents of both was different. So I couldn't read them as one email. Printing was not possible.

Best regards,
