Like I mentioned, if you insert a sig that has just one HTML element,

HTML.  Or use the Insert HTML and insert a horizontal line at the top or
bottom (i.e. hr ). That will force it to be sent in HTML.

I can see how it is confusing, although I agree with the method.  Most 
of us write a message and send it off.  I compose in HTML and I have a 
serif font as my default.  I have my settings set to send in HTML to 
specific people in my AB, and because my sig file is an HTML file, it's 
sent that way.


But if I don't have any specific HTML elements and I am composing in 
HTML mode, TB is taking the privilege to send the message as it sees 
fit, since there aren't any HTML elements included.


I would agree that if the user has the settings to compose in HTML, it 
should be sent in HTML, EVEN if there is only a font setting as the 
default.

If there is nothing in HTML, SM have the right to send it in plain

Simple. You have two ways to compose messages, in Plain Text or HTML. 
Read what I said about the rest.  And I disagree.  A client doesn't have 
the RIGHT to send it plain text when the user is in the HTML mode 
composing a message.  If they wanted to send in PT, they would COMPOSE 
in PT.

It's not my problem.

If you cannot furnish a testcase to reproduce the problem, nobody will

But i repeat if you position your preference to send only in html - and 
if you at least put an html stuff into your mail(per exemple, use an 
automatic signature in html format) ... SM WILL NOT convert your message

Yes - putting stuff in every message that forces the converter to say
send in HTML is a common workaround that a lot of people do (see the
original thread I referenced at the top of this one).  Having a fancy
HTML signature also works as a workaround.

In fact, it looks like the workarounds are going to be the solution
because no one wants to make things right.  Has anyone looked through
their own sent folder to see if all their converted multi-paragraph
non-HTML messages converted properly?  THAT's your test case.  I have
not been able to figure out why it does paragraph breaks correctly
sometimes and not others, that doesn't meant there isn't a
deterministic problem, I just can't identify it.

However, that's not the point.  The point is that I want my Email to
be read in HTML when I send it in HTML.  If I use a proportional font
I want the reader to see a proportional font, etc.

If you post and say Since -one- (only one) of the reasons you want to
do this is to fix a bug you can reproduce, we're going to ignore all
the other reasons then your religion is showing.  Sad thing that 8-}

Spammers would love it if the author could pre-determine how the 
recipient reads email. The fact is, the author has little or NO control 
over how the recipient will read his messages.


Some programs (Pine comes to mind) don't read HTML at all, they are 
plain text only. Most modern email or news programs can display either 
plain text or HTML, but at the recipients decision.  Mozilla products 
allow you a choice even in HTML, original HTML or simple HTML.


There is no means of you ensuring anyone to read it the way you 
intended, they will read it in the means they have preset their email 
(or news or even web browser) to display.


That may be plain text, html, simple html, html with javascript, without 
javascript, with their choice of fonts (or not), in colour or in black 
or white, the choice is up to the reader, the recipient, NOT the author.


Only send HTML to those who have requested such.

I wish Mozilla did allow me a choice.  No matter how hard I try to
have messages go, by default, in HTML.  Mozilla looks at them and says
yeah, plain text is good enough and converts them.

that's the problem.

All I'm suggesting is an OPTION to disable the auto-conversion.  I

If you choose to send in HTML then it wont be converted, it will be
sent as html.
This is a false statement.

again, others have asked that you email them an html
message and then we'll go from there, and so far you
have failed to do that.


I'm happy to send a message to anyone.  just supply the email

 True statement:  If you choose to send in
HTML, and there is nothing in your message that warrants HTML, SM will
convertto plaintextand send plaintext.

maybe it is and maybe its not


Actually, it is.  There doesn't seem to be any dispute about this
statement in this thread (until now). The debate is whether this is
the single, correct behavior.

This is a well-established fact.  I am asking that the auto-conversion
be optional, so that your original statement becomes the truth.

Well, when I Send a message from a HTML enabled account, in just text, 
no html specifics, AND choose, send as HTML, it is received as the font 
I sent it in (proportional)


If it had been 'converted' then I would have received the monospace 
version (plain text).


So for me, if I choose to send in html (only), then that is what is sent.

my email is above, is attached to every post I make
moz.champ...@sympatico.ca

so send me a html formatted email, with no html objects/features in it 
already.

We did some testing on this some time back and found that Moz clients 
require at least one HTML element to send as HTML (10-07-08 in MTMM). 
It can be done by creating a Template to use for your email and then 
insert a simple HTML code in body using the HTML Editor (Insert, HTML 
for TB).


Or configure your sig file as HTML.

THANK YOU THANK YOU TERRY R.  WOULD EVERYONE ELSE PLEASE READ HIS
RESPONSE.
Moz clients require at least one HTML element to send as HTML.

My request is to have an option that changes the Options - Format
default from Auto-Detect to HTML.  So that it will require no HTML
to send as HTML.

I suppose that someone can say I disagree, I believe the default
option should be Auto-Detect.  and you have your opinion, and I have
mine (athough if things were reversed, I would yield so that everyone
can have things as they want).  But please, can we stop the
discussions that say

SM doesn't convert HTML to plain text (see Terry R's response above,
it does)
You shouldn't want you HTML to go out as HTML unless it needs to be,
and here are some examples where it doesn't matter  (I do want it,
and I have examples where it does matter).

1) I've established what Options - Format - Auto-detect does.
2)  I've established that there is no way to change the behavior
without workarounds of various painfulness (hand-select Options -
Format - HTML every time, add a signature with sufficient HTML in it,
etc).
3) I've politely requested a way to change the default from Auto-
Detect to Rich (HTML) Text.

No offense to all, and I understand that some may not agree that my
request should be granted, but I think I've proved that it's a valid
request.

So if you want to continue discussion on how to implement, or (I
suppose, sigh) whether to implement, that's great, but can I please
stop proving that the issue exists?

Thanks all!

No - HTML with nothing special is still HTML.  It can look different
to the recipient, also, the conversion to plain text isn't perfect.
It's intermittent, but I've had it remove paragraph-breaks and vaery
occasionally add line breaks randomly.  I'm getting tired of using
options-format-HTML every time i want to be sure a message arrives
looking like i sent it.  They get garbled only occasionally, but it's
always the ones where I needed it to look right.

if I send in a proportional font, I want people to read it in a
proportional font, etc.  I won't repeat what I've already written.

To be honest, if the people who do SM are starting to enforce their
religious preferences, it may be time to find a different mail client.

Re: Request for Seamonkey 2.0

2009-03-28 Thread google00
Hi Ray-net - actually a good Email, as you confirmed my issue -
Thanks.  However, your conclusions are incorrect...

if you don't use any html gadget when composing your mail... the mail
is sent in plain text.

I absolutely agree - thanks!

In this case, there is no need of a conversion, because there is
nothing to convert. SM1.1.14 is working perfectly

I absolutely disagree.  This is not a true statement at all.

To prove it, do a message in html (text only, like you did before),
but make the sentences long,  and put in several paragraph breaks, and
maybe a couple of numbered lists.  Use CR only to end a paragraph (2
of them), and to end a list item.  Then send it and see what it looks
like after SM does it's conversion.  Many of the CRCR will be
converted to CR, removing the blank line between paragraphs. And
sometimes a line will get a CR inserted randomly.

You CANNOT see this with a short message, but boy does SM mess up the
long ones.

thanks for your interest.

Re: Request for Seamonkey 2.0

2009-03-28 Thread google00
Hi

1)  I obviously cannot send you a sample.txt file for an INTERMITTENT
issue.

2) We both agree that, for example, if I write a message in Comic Sans
MS, and want my messages to go out IN THAT FONT (because that's the
way I like people to see my messages), there's no way to do that
without
a) making sure there's some bold, or something that convinces SM
that HTML is required
b) having to do Options-Format-Rich HTML Only, for EVERY MESSAGE

I would argue that reason #2 is enough to provide an option to disable
auto-conversion.  Suppose I just want every message to go in HTML
because I want people to see the message on the other end just the way
I wrote it?  Not converted to boring, monospaced text.

Further, I would suggest that if you write a lot of multi-paragraph
Email with no special formatting, that if you look through your sent
folder, you will find at least a few emails with paragraph-breaks
missing.  I did this exercise this morning and found 8 out of about 40
in the last week.  I could send you one, but
 a) you're not getting the source message, so you don't have a
test case
 b) Because the problem is intermittent, it may not fail for
you.

Still, I think the bad conversion is a secondar issue. Consider
this:
If Seamonkey provides a per-message option Options-Format-Rich
HTML, why is it so wrong for me to ask for an option that makes this
the -default- selection?  Motives are secondary.

Please don't close this issue, please treat it.

Thanks!
/j






 Sorry  i did not have any problem - all is perfect 
 If you cannot sent me a sample.txt file for testing, i will close this
 issue.

never mind, I just realized something.  This is SM2, and not SM 1.1.x.


Check out the new Thunderbird's
*Bug 466674* https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=466674 - 
default action should be to send out html + plaintext w/o asking

and specifically:-
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=466674#c4
which pretty-much summarises the current SM2 options.

Even with all SM-2.0b1pre preferences set to HTML, with the 
sole-exception being the manual-selection of each-message's 
Compose-window's toolbar-menu ~ Option/Format/ ~ The Auto-Detect 
setting converts HTML-text to plain-text without advising the user. 
Auto-Detect does work OK in all other settings. HTML-text manually-fixed 
on each-message, by the Option/Format/Rich-Text(HTML)only menu, will 
send as HTML. Barry.

Thanks Peter - that's indeed an option, for, as posted when sending
formatted messages and one or more recipients are not listed as being
able to receive HTML.  However, if you don't fill in any HTML or
PlainText Domains, then, regardless of which of the 4 settings you
choose from that menu, Seamonkey will STILL convert messages composed
in HTML to plain text if it doesn't see any reason to leave them in
HTML.  Try it yourself.   I'm sorry to be getting testy, but this
thread started with an affirmation of the problems, and an agreement
from developers that it existed.  It continues with, no offense, over
a dozen armchair, foundationless oh, I don't think that's really a

developers are assured there is an issue here, which there surely
is.

Guys,  really, my apologies for pushing back, but regardless of what
settings you pick, on any menu, SM will convert Email composed in HTML
to plain text if there is nothing in the message that makes it think
it has to use HTML, unless, on a per message basis, you select options-
format- rich text.

All I'm asking is for an option (even just an about: setting) that
disables the conversion,and sends HTML messages in HTML all the time.

no, you're wrong on that account.  If you select one of 
those settings, then it will be sent as html regardless 
if you have the receiver set to receive plain text or 
html. This will over-ride any and all settings you 
have. You don't even need to add domains.


If you have the setting selected as send html 
regardless, then thats exactly what will be sent.  If 
you have send in html and plain text selected, then 
thats exactly what will be sent, a message in both html 
and plain text. Thats the setting I have and I've never 
had a problem whatsoever.

It is Grant's response that he considered OT, and was done to warn those 
viewing the thread that his reply is not offering support on the topic. 
 I consider this to be the case with mine, so I have done the same.  It 
would have been better for you to reply to him in his original OT reply. 
 That way the sub thread would have been moved to mozilla.general, the 
appropriate place for off topic discussions, rather then muddying your 
original thread.  I have also set followups to this post to mozilla.general.


You don't need to do anything to change it back.  Only reply to the OT 
posts if you want to pursue the OT sub thread in mozilla.general. 
Otherwise, simply reply to the last post that you think has offered you 
any help.


I am afraid I am a loss to help you as well.  I generally both view and 
compose in plain text, so I may not be the best tester for this issue. 
However, in the testing I have done with html posting and reading, all 
seems to be working fine. Since I really prefer not to work in html in 
mail, there may be issues here that my more limited testing is not showing.

duplicate of bug 136502. Comment 8 there states that you can achieve
what you want on a per-domain basis so there's a partial workaround.
The
real fix needs someone to step up and write a patch for that bug,
though. I think the best way to do it would be to just introduce a
pref
and handle any UI changes in follow-up bugs.

Thanks very much everyone. Again to the developers, a flag to shut
off auto-conversion to plain text would be very much appreciated. 8-}



If your problem of the auto-conversion to plain text appear only with
SM 2 ...I will stay the rest of my live with SM 1.1.x ... because
...most of the time ... some bugs/new-feature-suggestion are never
corrected/implemented.


Let us please remember that SeaMonkey 2 is yet an alpha. It has a ways 
to go, but it is going to be a great step forward, and has to be the way 
of the future for the suite approach.



AS I said earlier, I am not noticing the problem, but I am usually on 
plain text for both composing and reading.

I work with SM 1.1.14.
On my mail account - View Settings for this account - Composition  
Adressing - I have the option Compose messages in HTML format SET.

So there is no need to do something for each mail sent.

In addition, when in mail - Options - Format - is by default set to 
Auto-Detect.


googl...@kwcpa.com wrote:

I only wish I could.  The only way to do this requires me to do
Options - Format - Rich Text
EVERY TIME I send an email.

If i just write an email, and send it.  The conversion is automatic,
unheralded, and unstoppable.

Just a suggestion - read the top of the thread before you reply - it's
all up there.

Yes Ray - that option is there - Feel free to set it.  I have mine
set.  Doesn't make any difference.  Seamonkey will STILL convert your
messages to plain text when it thinks it's appropriate.  So if you
want to be sure that you send in HTML, you MUST do something for EACH
Email.  This is well documented in the thread I refer to at the top of

no, you're missing one setting: Edit, Preferences, Mail 
 Newsgroups, Send Format, and at the top right, select 
either the 3rd or 4th setting.

I agree with Mr. Barclay, but there is much to do and only so much
free labor.  So I limit my request to simply providing an option to
turn off the I think you should send plain text, so I will convert it

 Perhaps there's some lynx or links2 code that could be used in SeaMonkey to
 create thetextrendition of HTML messages.

Yes Lee, I can.  But I'm a bit tired of having to do Options - Format

for -every- single email that I send.

That's why I'm politely requesting the option  disable auto-
conversion to plain text.

 Look in Send Format.

 You can make your preferred selection there.

Hi Mr. Davidsen - I care because when SM converts to plain text - it
corrupts the message.  Paragraph breaks are removed and text is
wrapped oddly.

SM converts from HTML to Plain Text BADLY.  Take my word for it.
Biggest problem is that paragraph breaks are reduced, eliminating
blank line between paragraphs.  Text also sometimes wraps improperly
(Newlines appear in the middle of lines).

So i compose in HTML by default.  I look at what I composed in HTML.
I like what I see (i.e., format is correct).  and I hit SEND.  Then I
go into my Sent folder, and look at what SM sent out, and it's
HORRIBLE!  The paragraphs are all run-on to each other, lines are
randomly broken etc.

This is a BAD thing.

Yes, I could COMPOSE in plain text, but that is a less convenient
thing to do.  I have to manually wrap my lines, and I can't use an
easy-to-read font (for composition).

All I'm asking for is a general setting (on the about: page) that
disables auto-conversion.  I would ask to have the conversion fixed,
but that seems like more work and you guys work too hard already.  How
hard is it to just SEND the HTML that was composed?

Thanks very much - looking forward to SM 2.0!

you just proved the point for the opposite: its better 
to view and send in html
