#30 closed enhancement (fixed)

filtering out the html version of the email

Description

Is there anyway to filter out the html version of an email as the text version seems to be the one actually used in the ticket? The HTML version just gets tacked on as an attachment and isn't particularly useful.

There are programs that converts html messages to text messages. We can use one of these external programs to convert html to texx messages, but they are not 100% full proof, It can be helpful. We have to make it an option in email2trac.conf:

html2text : <path>/<utility>

My question was more related to receiving emails that include both the
raw text version and the html version of the email, however being able
to over ride the raw text version would probably get the same net
benefit.

Oke my misreading of the message. Just another question is there a way to determine if the raw text version is the same as the html version?

Not sure, if you used some of the afore mentioned tools you could test
for it, that or just diff the two of them and test to see if all
that's
left are html tags (the second solution seems like it would be more
work
thou...).
