Re: [Evolution] poll: patch to optionally disable HTML mail?


I like this. I get HTML mail that has attached GIFs that obscure the
text I need to see (HTML rendering problem?). If I open these mails in
pine, I can see the text (which has the real information in the first
place) fine. I would like the option of seeing the text version (if it
exits) of an email as the default with the HTML version as an attachment
to be opened as I choose.

It's still a matter of dealing with people who want to make a simple 3
line message pretty. In the worst case they'll make it a 1MB powerpoint
slide to express less than 1 KB of info. I get HTML mail that is not
spam, but in most cases there's a text equivalent with the email, but
evolution won't let me choose which I want to see by default.

If the HTML part was an attachment, I could open it if I wanted, but the
message body would show the plain text part.

I have written a patch which implements this

the Evolution developers aren't convinced that many people would use
