The HTML markup sticking in the text-mode content was my bad - I hadn't got around to adding a strip HTML function to the code.

It would be preferable if we had a similar scheme we did in both the Javascript and Python regarding tag stripping (ie. having <a> targets display the 'title' and/or 'href' as text, and/or having only the 'alt' from <img> tags appear where the image used to be and/or and stripping every other tag).

Boost this up to severity 3 (important)?

Mails composed from Dragonfly currently have a number of issues, viz.:

Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="===============0649628103=="

--===============0649628103==
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

This is a test e-mail<br><br>Let's see if we can send it.<br>

--===============0649628103==
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

This is a test e-mail<br><br>Let's see if we can send it.<br>

--===============0649628103==--

There are a few things wrong with this:

  • the test/plain content has encoded HTML,
  • charsets are "us-ascii" - we should be UTF-8 (this may necessitate work to ensure 8-bit+ values get correctly encoded)
  • we should be sending 8bit mail, not 7bit. If the receiving server cannot handle 8bit(!), that's SMTP's problem.

It's likely most of this is Python-side.
