Description (last modified by damato)

To solve long standing problems like the errorneous ">From" quoting due to procmail and to be more future conform to other modern clients and implementation of the text/plain format=flowed is required. YAM would definitly benefit out of that, however some modifications to TextEditor.mcc might be require to make that new feature possible. So it might be a bigger job... However, here is the link to the RFC explaining the format=flowed mechanism:

More information on the format 'flowed' mechanism and why it may be important to us:

A relatively new RFC (3676) discusses the 'format=flowed' and 'delsp=yes' content-type parameters which are already supported by clients like Thunderbird/AppleMail and which are used to define how a certain text/plain was formatted by the generating client.

IMHO a future YAM version should support this RFC and consider generating only format=flowed text/plain parts in case it is required.

However, this might require a modification of TextEditor.mcc so that quoted lines are correctly displayed and perhaps also like in Thunderbird (vertical colored bar)
