There were several discussions about that on the list and
unfortunately list moderators didn't pay enough attention to it.
Android Gmail sends totally valid multipart message that has HTML and
List being unable to process those correctly and cut off HTML part is
I personally feel that i could and would be more active on the list if
not for this limitation.
Don't want to accept HTML messages - fine. But don't tell me which
program to use for my email, especially when I'm sending totally valid
message, so take my plain text message part and use it.
To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe git" in
the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org
