Email - HTML


#1

When I respond to an email it has a TON of html in it? How can I get rid of that?

example:

Hi Roy, you have to click on this > link:

  > href="http://webmail.vetvoicecan.org/src/login.php" > mce_href="http://webmail.vetvoicecan.org/src/login.php" mce_style="color: > #0000ff; text-decoration: underline; clear: both; " style="font-size: > 15px; color: rgb(0, 0, 255); clear: both; > ">http://webmail.vetvoicecan.org/src/login.php
style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; > font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; > text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; > word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-size-adjust: auto; > -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); > margin: 0cm 0cm 13px; line-height: 17.77777862548828px; font-size: 15px; > font-family: Calibri, sans-serif; ">Then you will enter rf for the email > address (it already will put the @ > href="http://vetvoicecan.org">vetvoicecan.org)
style="color: rgb(0, 0, 0); font-style: normal; font-variant: normal; > font-weight: normal; letter-spacing: normal; orphans: 2; text-align: left; > text-indent: 0px; text-transform: none; white-space: normal; widows: 2; > word-spacing: 0px; -webkit-text-size-adjust: auto; > -webkit-text-stroke-width: 0px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); > margin: 0cm 0cm 13px; line-height: 17.77777862548828px; font-size: 15px; > font-family: Calibri, sans-serif; ">And then put  style="font-size: 15px; ">Password: Voices2013

What email-reader are you using? Some have a strip-html function.

It’s squirrelmail through Dreamhost…is that what you mean?

Close enough :smiley: (I use PostBox for Mac, which has a ‘strip HTML’ function).

I think you can do this following this step- Go on Options> Display Preferences, and set “yes” to “Show HTML Version by Default”. That will make it display at the very least. There should be other options in there to go further.
