HTML display broken in 1.9.5

Reported by Andreas Jung | August 30th, 2016 @ 04:40 AM

Since my upgrade to r5255 displaying HTML mails is partly broken.

Here is a sample how the mail is rendered by MM and within Google Mail (including source EML file).


The original HTML markup is also much different from the one shown by MailMate with its myriades of


inside the HTML.

    HTML filtering of the issue seems to have eaten the HTML tags I posted in my original posting.

    MM displays the HTML source with tons of DIV tags with dir=auto attribute.

    • State changed from “new” to “cantreproduce”

    The HTML source is the result of MailMate generating HTML from a plain text message part. MailMate isn't trying to display the HTML at all (based on the screenshots).

    Maybe you have selected “Prefer Plain Text” in the Viewer preferences pane? (The default for this setting has not changed, but if there's a bug then it's somehow related to MailMate choosing to display the plain text alternative instead of the HTML without being asked to do so.)

    MailMate also remembers (for individual emails) if you have explicitly selected a different message part using “View ▸ Message Body Parts” (possibly via a shortcut).

    Yes, you are right. My mistake.
