  I can't see any relation to the issue reported in #1217. 
  
  But from what you wrote there, I guess that your problem with delays creating 
a reply is the bad habit to copy the full correspondence with each single 
message which has ever been sent in this thread, unabridged with all the images 
etc. 
  
  I consider this a very unpolite habit. Imagine you are sitting together in a 
conference, and each person, after delivering her or his contribution, repeats 
all those contributions which the others have made before, including all the 
grammatical errors and eh and ahm and what have you. 
  
  One should only copy what is needed to understand which part of the received 
message one is replying to. 
  
  Then you will have no delays before you can start writing.

  I do reply — as in this case — only with quoting those pieces of text which 
are relevant to understand what I am replying to.  Either by marking that piece 
of text, or cutting out everything not needed; this concerns certainly images 
including company logos.

  Creating a HTML message is certainly slower than plain text. Especially with 
TheBat! not using proper quotes, but the Procrustean bed of creating nested 
HTML TABLEs (shudder — one of the reasons why I do not recomment TheBat to 
others).

  I found the test message which I sent today in MESSAGES.TBB in OUTBOX

  I wonder why your system is not logged in to IMAP all the time, and then why 
there TheBat! is logging in to the IMAP4 server twice within 6 seconds. 
  
  Besides, for writing and sending a message, this goes via SMTP, not IMAP4, 
just as also POP3 is only for receiving. 
  
  I just created and sent a message via one of my IMAP accounts, just for 
testing, and there was no need to connect via IMAP4. 
  
  No delay at all in creating the message and sending it.

  Why don't you contact them?
  qq.com is actually made by Tencent: http://www.tencent.com/en-us/index.html 

Yes, and Tencent is one of the biggest tech companies in the world. 

  Comparable to Google.  I also can't understand why people chose Google Mail 
to let the data collectors gather information on with whom and how frequently 
the customer exchanges mails.  
  In capitalism: TANSTAAFL = There is no such thing as a free lunch. When you 
don't pay with money, you pay with your data, i.e. your privacy. 
  
  BTW, GMX is only one service and brand of United Internet, others are 1&1, 
Web.de, Strato, Drillisch, and others. See de.wikipedia


They will certainly listen to me when I tell them that they need to change 
their RFC-headers.

I just went through a month-long discussion with GMX, the biggest email 
provider in Europe, about one of their settings. The end was that they finally 
understood that there is something wrong with their settings, and that they 
will relay it to their tech department (of course I could only talk to customer 
service). I am a paying customer there.

   I had the same experience; they are very arrogant there. But both our 
experiences show that perseverance pays. GMX/Web.de had wrong settings so that 
relatives of me could not send mail to a common friend of us in an african 
country. Even quoting relevant rules from RFCs didn't convince them. They 
finally corrected the error when I told them that their error was not a problem 
for me, since my main email account is on T-Online, and I am forwarding mail 
from my GMX-only relatives. 
   

GMX are most likely a microscopic company compared to Tencent. I don't have any 
comparison figures for QQ Mail, but would not be surprised if they could 
swallow GMX many times over in terms of number of users.

  At least, long after my complaints, they stopped adding a second PDF of 168 
kb with the same file name as the actual invoice. So they change, but only in 
snail speed. 
  
  As to the Tencent problem: Here is the relevant rule from RFC5322, which is 
probably the current version of the original RFC822

  Still just one mailserver. But ... could it be that the culprit is not the 
SMTP-Server but the mail program of your correspondent? Is there a "X-mailer"

  There is one more step in between: select "Message" or so in the Context

  Ceterum censeo ... my demand old of several years: 
  
  Get rid of F4 and copy into the reply just those parts which are highlighted. 
Any Windows program including those written in Delphy can check it some part of 
the pane's content is selected or not, and then take the selected part. 
  
  There is absolutely no need to have different keys for replying with and 
without quote. 

  That this is not tackeled even it is so simple and such an improvement is one

re Bug? Automatic fill in of recipients address

  You edited the actual mailbox address, not the free form name:  
  

Well, I changed it to michaela (I have no tom in my addressbook ), and TB 
made a suggestion that I would have to click on. If I don't click on it, the 
email goes to michaela@extrasensory, see attached.

  Try to repeat what I did to check:   
  
  Highlight this part of text, then select from the context menu "Reply to all 
with highlighted text" (or so, my retranslation from German), then begin to 
correct in the free form name, before the mailbox address, my first name from 
"Lüko" to something more common. You will find that the whole address, 
including my mailbox address is being replaced by an entry from your address 
book. And since my address is not in your address book, it is not offered in 
the list to correct this auto-complete. No way back! 
  
  Autocomplete when in a reply editing a TO or CC address copied by TheBat from 
the mail being replied to should never be done, only when adding an additional 
recipient's address. 
  
  Got it?

I use it a lot and like the auto-complete, so no bug.

  Autocomplete is nice for entering a new address from scratch. 
  
  But it is a bug, when I want to only change a little bit in the free form 
name, and suddenly get a completely different address, without any means to 
restore the mailbox address from the mail I am replying to.

  I experience even worse problems with the opposite — quite often, when I do a 
REPLY, I want to edit the free form name of the TO-recipient, and then TheBat! 
uses the few letters I am typing in to look up an address in the address book,

that change possible.

  Just install TheBat! on the new PC and then copy the mail-directory with all

   the Ribbon stuff forces my eyes to wander over the whole width of the screen

  They are not Arabs, they are a people speaking a turcic language, leftover 
from one of those many nomadic horse riding invasions from the steppes in the 
North East of Asia, one of those peoples who suffered the fate that the door 
slammed shut behind them after they entered. 

>> They are not Arabs, they are Turks. And they changed from arabic

  While the language we know as Turkish has incorporated a huge amount of words 
from Arabic (the most notable is kitap for book), it is a completely different 
language, part of the family of turkic languages which are spoken in Central 
Asia from Azerbaycan and Turkmenistan to Kazakstan and the Chinese province of 
Sinkiang, also known as East Turkestan. 

Side note on kitap: in original Arab it is kitab, with a voiced or sonant B at 
the end. Like German, the turkish language pronounces such endings voiceless, 
non-sonant. This is different from English (you recognize Germans speaking 
english this way). Kitab found its way into many languages, where ever the 
Islam penetrated. But the plural is language specific. In Arabic kuttub, in 
Turkish kitaplar, in Suaheli witab... 

  Coming back to the issue discussed here: tr would be the sign for Turkish, in 
latin script. For Arab I would recommend the letter 'ain: ع

 Make it a graphic icon, and underlay it with an ALT text which on hovering the 
mouse pointer over it, display the name of the language 

 Googling for "icons for languages" finds a lot of sources for such icons.

  I do agree with Peter Herklotz 100%. 
  
  Ribbons are made to chain the user for too long time so that he does not get 
his work done, by wasting time to search thru ribbons. 
  
  When the new Ultraedit introduced ribbons, they gave at least the choice to 
switch back to the regular interface for speed users as me. So switching back 
to the regular interface was the first thing I did. 
  
  OTOH, Windows Office 2010, which I can unfortunately not replace because of 
the VBA programming support, does waste my time with these horrible ribbons. I 
found no way yet to switch to a useable interface. 
  
  Trying to force a waste of my time is one more reason not to upgrade to 
TheBat 9 (the other being not supporting proper quoting in HTML mails). 
  
  BTW, I could not see much of those screenshots — they are miniature and I

You can also send me the procedure that looks for mids before downloading mails.

  The Filter manager has a section "Selektive Übertragung" (selective transfer,

  What is this "Thunderbird quote bar" you are talking about? There is no 
special Thunderbird keyboard with a special "Thunderbird bar". 
  
  We all can only use the standard vertical bar | (Unicode U+007C), or as 
everybody else.

  TheBat! is in error because it does not render email quotes in incoming 
emails of content-type=text/html. 
  
  TheBat! simply ignores quotes and renders them as regular text. 

  And on the other hand, in outgoing mails of content-type=text/html, does not 
mark quotes as such, but as a spreadsheet, so that the recipient email client 
does not recognize what is written for this mail by the author, and what had 
he/she quoted. Even less access the quoted mail or web page using the URN in 
the CITE parameter.  Of course, eMail clients are not the appropriate program 
for editing spreadsheets, so when the intelligence of a human reader grasps 
that what is coded as spreadsheet is actually what the author had quoted, and 
tries to use the text in the table, but will inevitable break the spreadsheet.

  The above is confirmed by statistics which are collected by a company named  
Litmus Email Analytics, and they include not only eMail clients for desktop 
computers, as I did, but for mobile devices, too.  I have no clue on which way 
they do collect this 1000 million of emails. 
  
  Here is their top 10 list for Juni 2019, taken from 
https://emailclientmarketshare.com/ 
 
#01 Gmail 29% +0.45   
#02 Apple iPhone  27% -0.62   
#03 Outlook9% +0.72   
#04 Apple iPad 8% -0.43   
#05 Apple Mail 7% -0.04   
#06 Yahoo! Mail6% -0.52   
#07 Google Android 3% +0.17   
#08 Outlook.com2% -0.1
#09 Samsung Mail   1% -0.08   
#10 Thunderbird0% -0.01   
 (Sorry that this is not in a table, but copying into a table in TheBat! does 
not work; I would have to either fill each cell individually or create an XLS 
file and insert this).
 
 I have marked those for desktops with yellow background. This confirms which I 
had written before.
 
 Gmail (i.e. Google mail) is being used both on desktops and on mobile devices. 
Gmail is surpassed by Apple if we add the three versions for iPhone, iPad and 
desktop tallied separately by this Litmus company.  
 
 If the widely used Thunderbird is counted on less than a half percent of 
emails checked by this Litmus company, TheBat! and even more those unknowns 
which Mr. Gleason misunderstands as "major player" are completely out of the 
picture.

  You are right. This Mr. Gleason has not the slightest idea of HTML and MIME, 
but he insists on abusing HTML because he has no clue of how to used it. 
  
  Sorry for being rude, but fact, and this fact needs to be stated. 
  
  It is time that Ritlabs ignores such foolery. 
  
  A quote needs to be announced to the recipient's client as such, by using the 
HTML tag for quoting, i.e. the BLOCKQUOTE tag. 
  
  An email client which doesn't render quotes is quotes and does not mark 
quotes as such, is useless.

 That's OK, but I also understand from your statement that you do not

  No problem, but you should not keep others from getting an easy look at 
exactly that structure, by which token those people in the know would be able

  This list of attachments (and body parts) is aside, and you can ignore it. I 
think that TheBat! even allows to not show it at all.

  On the contrary, that is marked as an attachment and is transmitted as such, 
so that it is not shown inline in the email's text, but in a list of 
attachments. 
  
  The problem with TheBat! is that it does not make a difference between 
attachments on the one hand, and body parts to be shown inline on the other. 

  Therefore my plea for two tabs in the column showing all parts as 
"attachments", the one being shown as default for the actual attachments, the 
other for all bodyparts in their nested structure.

 Fact is, that the quoting in TheBat! is broken, is utter nonsense and does not 
work at all.
 
 When I get a message which quotes something I had written before, TheBat! does 
not render the quote as a quote. And I have no means to tell for sure what is a 
quote and what is new text in a message, and no link to the message being 
quoted. Normally quotes would be identified by enclosing them with a BLOCKQUOTE 
or Q tag. 
 
 When I use TheBat!'s broken quoting, it get's completely gobbled up until 
recognition.
 
 You speak about a "list of major players" meaning apparently email clients.
 
 But you mention only one of the "major players", namely Thunderbird. More 
often used than Thunderbird is MS Outlook, MS Outlook Express (or Live, as they 
call it now), and in a similar range Apple Mail, which has for Mac users the 
same importance as Outlook and Outlook Express for Windows users.
 

  
 
 BTW, I tried to get a statistic of the number of the various eMail clients as 
shown by the X-MAILER header, but the search by TheBat! does not allow to 
select a given header and only search the content of that header field. And I 
could not export my full message store to MBOX format — nothing happens, unless 
I select each single folder at one time, but hat is too tedious to do. And the 
file format of the TBB and TBN files is not known to me.

  This makes me think that you don't know anything about HTML and CSS.
 
  But you insist on making strong statements trying to dictate the world how 
use this markup language and presentation system.
  
  And you want that the eMail client hides to the recipient, what is a quote 
from an earlier message, and provide the link to it, and what is newly created 
by the author for that particular message. HTML tags are not made to create an 
appearance, but they convey a meaning. Only by tagging a piece of text as QUOTE 
can the recipient know what is a quote and what not, and use the information in 
the CITE parameter to the BLOCKQUOTE tag to look up the source of the quote. 
  
  That you don't want to know what is going on, is your problem, but you should 
not insist, that nobody should be able to use TheBAt! as a sensible email 
client. 
  
  From everything which you have uttered in this thread, it comes out louder 
and clearer that you have no clue what HTML is and what eMail is to be. 
 
  But when you don't know anything about what you are talking about, then

stop showing emails without attachments as having a dozen or more attachments. 
I can live with messed up display, but having to dig through a list of 
attachment or tabs of different types of text only to discover I'd already read 
it all is absurd. 


  TheBat!'s error is to treat each and every body part as an "attachment". 
  
  Attachment are only those with "content-disposition: attachment", not content 
parts to be shown inline, which is marked with the parameter 
"content-disposition: inline". 
  
  TheBAt! should have two separate lists, selectable by a TAB, one of the real 
attachments, the other the nested list of all body parts.

 The simple reason is that my OS/2 PC broke down. 
 
 So I looked for an alternative to PMmail on Windows, and TheBat! with the same 
3-panel window seemed to be the closest.

  You speak like the people on this job interview which the great Argentinian 
cartoonist recorded in 9 images, each with a recruiter's question (marked ¿>) 
and an applicant's response (marked <), plus a tenth image showing the result:

  ¿> Name?

  ¿> Place of birth?
  < married

  < pertussis in the age of 4, measles at 7
  ¿> Good. That's enough. You can start working tomorrow. 
   
  The 10th image shows the applicant sitting at a desk marked "Information". 
  
  You see, it doesn't matter what you say, it works. 
  
  You tell me "Pay the bill I sent you", and I will think "OK, he says that I

this universally accepted quoting is what I don't want to loose.  

  A quote is a QUOTE, not a table. 
  
  You may select a small sample of unkown email clients which do it the wrong 
way. 
  Especially trying to build endlessly nested TABLEs, as TheBat! is doing, it 
utter nonsense. 
  
  The correct was has been specified already in 1998 in this document to be 
found at W3C,  HTML Threading: Conventions for use of HTML in email  written by 
Eric Berman (Microsoft Corporation), Pete Resnick  (QUALCOMM Incorporated), and 
Nick Shelness (LOTUS). 
  
  


  HTML hat two semantic tags for quoting: BLOCKQUOTE and Q. BLOCKQUOTE is, as 
the name says, a block element, while Q is an inline tag. 
  
  

  From the above linked document: 

  
Appendix A: Suggested Implementation Guidelines 

This section describes a suggested implementation model for UAs. These are 
guidelines only and do not constitute a requirement for compliance. 

Editing issues 

Quoting during reply/forward 
When quoting a message during a reply/forward, it is recommended that the text 
be encapsulated with BLOCKQUOTE elements, with a CITE attribute identifying the 
message being quoted, and optionally a CLASS attribute defining default style 
information. (BLOCKQUOTEs explicitly authored by the user should not have an 
CITE, or should have a CITE pointing to the current message, so that they can 
be distinguished from message excerpts.) 

As a message makes several roundtrips, it may acquire several nested BLOCKQUOTE 
blocks. Because most HTML implementations indent BLOCKQUOTE text, the use of 
BLOCKQUOTE ensures that recipients that support neither this recommendation nor 
CSS1 can still display an appropriate level of indentation to the user. 
However, a mail UA may choose to use other elements, such as DIV, if they do 
not wish to use BLOCKQUOTE in order to achieve the same grouping of text within 
a message (for example, for forwarding a message, where indenting may not be 
desired.). 

An application MAY choose to enclose all new message text in a DIV block so 
that all text is unambiguously tagged. This is not strictly necessary (since 
the lack of any explicit element or context indicates that the text is new). 
UAs MUST respect this element. When replying or forwarding the message, UA's 
MAY change the DIV to a BLOCKQUOTE to avoid needlessly nesting a DIV within a 
BLOCKQUOTE.   

Editing quoted text 

It is common when responding to a message to edit within the quoted block of 
text. For example, questions asked within the original message may be answered 
one at a time in the response. These edits can fall into two categories: "block 
level", where the division between quoted and new text is a block-level 
boundary, and "inline", where there is no such division. 

If the user was starting a new block in the middle of an existing one (by 
hitting enter, for example), the UA must restart the existing style and CITE 
block after the BLOCKQUOTE.   

For example, if the original text was: 
• 

The quick black fox

  
  

and the replying author hits enter before the word "fox", then the resulting 
HTML would be: 
• 
   
The quick black
  

  
You mean brown!
  

  
fox
  



The text "You mean brown" will thus appear on its own line and in the style 
defined for "ericbe--microsoft-com". Since the new text is not enclosed in any 
DIV or BLOCKQUOTE elements, it is considered part of the current message. 

Note that this may nest arbitrarily deep, so it may be necessary to close 
multiple BLOCKQUOTE elements and then reopen each one, with the right CLASS and 
CITE attributes, and in the right order. 

[follows an example of inline quoting using the Q tag, so that the quoted text 
does not appear in a line by itself]


  Try to do that with nested TABLEs (TABLE is meant to be nested arbitrarily 
deep), and it will create a madhouse. 
  
  What TheBat! does is an abuse of HTML. If there would be an HTML police, 
TheBat! would be punished for this violation of fundamentals.

Yes, that allows you to tie a specific set of macros to a specific email

would be to be able to specify a set of identities with different email

Then when I prepare a new email/reply, I should be able to simply choose the

  I can't comment on the "best product" (I am not satisfied, and I would have

  Showing a bar to to mark a blockquote is the task of the renderer. This is 
regulated in the CSS STYLE which does either accompany the mail, or which is 
used by the receiving client by its default STYLE. 
  
  TheBat! does not mark proper quotes at all. 
  See   »1216: HTML viewer does not render BLOCKQUOTE« at Ritlabs' Mantis bug

   essential changes like these for proper quoting in HTML-Mails, more than two

1216: HTML viewer does not render BLOCKQUOTE
1217: While replying to an HTML message, quoting should be done by 
BLOCKQUOTE, not by TABLE

  When I start the installation (as Admin), I see a dialogue that my licence 
would not be valid for this version 8.8.9, and that the installation would run 
as test. I cancelled the installation. 
  
  I mentioned that I tried the install as Admin — normally I install from my 
simple user account, and enter the Admin password when asked for it, but since 
some time, installations are interrupted before asking for Admin password with 
a dialogue, in the case of TheBat 8.8.9 after the begin of the actual 
installation, with "Windows Installer" in the Window title, and this text (in 
German): "Der Systemadministrator hat Richtlinien erlassen, um diese 
Installation zu verhindern" (my translation to english: "The system 
administrator has established rules to prevent this installation". 
  
  Well, the system admin is me. I have never declared such a rule, and not 
changed the rules.

Actually none of the body parts being shown there is an attachment, they

BTW, I am at odds to understand why this body part of Content-Type:

first alternative within the first body part being also Content-Type:

the other alternative, which is composed as Content-Type: text/html;

re Re-downloading all the mails, and the POP3 protocol
  

My suggestion:
   a) on the desktop, keep the number of days you keep messages on the server 
relative small;

I do that already. 4 weeks = over 5,000 messages in my company account.


   b) on the laptop (I guess that you have activated the option "keep ALL 
messages on the server") use the mailbox inspector to retrieve messages, maybe 
activate the option "activate mailbox inspector automatically for every 
retrieve".

With over 5,000 messages on the server, it is not practical to always use the 
mailbox inspector.


   So when after working 3 weeks at  home with your desktop PC, and then go on 
the road with the laptop, the laptop will find 3 weeks of new messages which 
are new to the laptop, and will download those roughly 3'750 messages. 

  That's what I wanted to make you understand by my longer explanations in my

re Re-downloading all the mails

  

It happens with automatic download, I hardly ever use F2. Only on the laptop 
that I travel with, not the PC at home.

  Isn't the status "READ" of each message stored in the POP3 client, and not 
the POP3 server? 
  
  Then your laptop have a different list of "new" messages than your desktop 
PC. 
  
  As far as I can see, the POP3 server does not keep a status VIEWED. 
  
  The POP3 server's response to the client's LIST command is the "scan listing" 
which 
   "consists of the message-number of the message, followed by a single space 
and the exact size of the message in octets." 
   
   The "message-number" is a sequential number of all messages in a "maildrop" 
assigned anew for each session, beginning with 1. 
   
   This message number is referred to in the RETR (retrieve) and DELE (delete) 
commands from the client. 
   
   Using the option command UIDL, the client can retrieve a list of unique ids 
a single message identified by message-number or all messages, with the 
UNIQUE-ID being a 
arbitrary server-determined string, consisting of one to 70 characters in the 
range 0x21 to 0x7E, which uniquely identifies a message within a maildrop and 
which persists across sessions. 
 
   If the POP3 client keeps track of those UNIQUE IDs, it can be sure not to 
re-download messages already seen. 
 
   As I said, I can't see a way the POP3 server could keep a list of 
messages wich are "new" for this POP3 account. It is only the POP3 client can 
know, which has to keep track of which messages have already been seen, but 
kept on the server. 
  
So, when several different POP3 clients access the same mail store, they do 
not have the same idea about what is a message already viewed, and which is 
not. 
   
   Several different POP3 clients would have to synchronise the list of UNIQUE 
IDs in order to consider the same messages as "NEW" or "VIEWED". 
   
   My suggestion: 
   a) on the desktop, keep the number of days you keep messages on the server 
relative small;
   b) on the laptop (I guess that you have activated the option "keep ALL 
messages on the server") use the mailbox inspector to retrieve messages, maybe

  I have also one account with GMX using POP3, but I can't recall that TheBat! 
accidentally downloaded all remaining and as "read" marked mails from the

  Is there maybe a hidden key combination with F2 which downloads all messages

  The issue is to drop a confusing and superflouis addition. 
  
  There is absolutely no necessity at all to have a separate key (F4) for 
replying with quote. 
  
  The software can detect by itself if text is selected (highlighted) and quote 
that.

  I don't understand what you want. Overloaded baroque software with 10 
different ways to do the same thing? 
  
  "KISS" is an old standing and tested design rule: Keep It Simple, Stupid. 
  
  After getting rid of the F4 for replying with quote, the context menus need 
to be cleaned up for unifying the actions selectable e.g. on a message etc. 
Those are too different in different context menus. Currently it is really a 
mess, IMHO.

  Gute Frage! Nächste Frage! 
  
  Actually, I don't see a way to do that. This is one of the reasons why I 
never use CLTR-R or CTRL-ENTER. 
  
  As I said before, bothering the writer with a quote of the complete message 
he had sent to me, is a sign of bad manners in my opinion. This should never be 
the default for replying. 
  
  I only reply with F4, and when there is nothing I want to quote, I select 
some single character, hit F4, and then delete this in my reply. 
  
  Windows "knows" if some piece of text had been selected (highlighted),  the 
program can query the boolean value indicating this, and then take the selected 
text and insert it in the reply message as a quote (for text/html enclosed in 
 tags  with the parameter cite="mid:message-id", so 
that the recipient can look up the message he/she had sent before for the full 
text of she/he wrote).

   CTRL-R could do that, and when I want to quote the whole text (which I 
consider rather bad manners), I would select everthing with an CTRL-A. The 
additional function key F4 is not needed. TheBat! should simply check if any 
text is selected (highlighted) and then quote that. If nothing is selected, 
don't quote anything. As simple as that. One needs only one special key for 
replying, and that is CTRL-R. This can be combined with either SHIFT or ALT or 
both for variations of replies.

  That's like I would like it to work as default. 
  
  A separate key (F4) for quoting what is highlighted is not necessary, since 
the software can find out if any text is highlighted or not, and then quote 
only the highlighted text. 
  
  KISS — keept it simple, stupid! is a good old design rule for software.

  Only when you limit yourself to Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
  But that is so much past century, and useful only for mail which is not for a

  You also know that campaign to ban rich text mail from the Netnews opened the

   Maybe not for Gleason. 
   
   For me it is, since I do not just mail out proclamations, but am engaged in 
correspondence, with messages going back and forth, and for this, proper 
quoting is essential.

  The author's reply to the question "is there a chance that you make the

What do have my and your Bat-installation have in common, and what those

I had thoughts about the address book, but the templates used in this

not as general templates per account or per address book group or individual

Just in case it might be of interest: there are 1395 entries in my address

   It doesn't copy the highlighted text from the message being replied to into 
the reply message. 
   
  Or this is some other effect after having restarted my PC this morning. 
  
  Neither the templates for reply and new message are applied. That's why this 
message is so bare. 
  
  
  All gone...

   and so on and so on. All things which do not concern me. 
   
   I am waiting that Ritlabs does remove this mess of quoting by TABLE instead 
of BLOCKQUOTE. 
   
   This is one of the horrible "features" which makes it impossible to 
recomment TheBat! to anybody. 
   
   There is also the problem that in a very large number of mails, the embedded 
images are not being shown. But on that one I will create a Mantis issue with 
examples. One can at any rate identify all mails distributed by "Mailchimp".
