forum.gifForum - External Editor - Topic #142

Topic #142 unwanted html
    by Drew_Gallatin - visitor

I recently upgraded from a BSD machine where I was using EE under thunderbird to an iMac under tbird1.5.0.7

On the BSD machine, the text that EE got from tbird was always plain text.  On MacOSX, it is getting html text, which is a real pain to edit.  I see html even when sending
to contacts which are listed as prefering text.

Is there some way to tell tbird to never, ever use html,
even "internally" so that vi or emacs is passed plain text?

Please take 2 minutes to read the EE usage page.
You should find your answer (EE drop down menu).

Actually, I cannot even find the EE usage page.  What dropdown?  Maybe this is why I was so lost.  I can configure EE from the Extensions pane, but I never found a usage page.

Anyway, I figured the real answer out myself.  The "preferences" setting for composing mail is just a decoy, and the real master setting is in the per-account settings.  Specifically,  Tools->AccountSettings->Composition&Addressing.  There is a checkbox to disable html entirely there. 

Thanks for the great plugin!  EE has made "modern" mailers much more usable for me.
