escaping markdown header seems buggy

Reported by Charlie Allom | May 21st, 2015 @ 10:20 AM

create a new mail with markdown formatting:

# header 1

# header 2

looks like this:

header 1

header 2


now escape one #

# header 1

\# header 2

looks like this:

header 1

# header 2


now escape both #

\# header 1

\# header 2

looks like this:

\# header 1

\# header 2


I would expect it to look like two plain #'s, without the backslash.

    This is why it happens: In your last example MailMate detects that Markdown is not really needed and therefore it is disabled when generating the message (too keep it nice and simple).

    The fix seems to be to remove escape characters when Markdown is enabled but not needed. The problem with that is that if you edit the message later then the escape characters won't return. That's tricky to solve.
