Since sylpheed disables all html I was wondering how I could easily view any html messages if I really wanted to see the mail with all its pretty images (actually, someone else in my house was, so I did this). This is a very simple trick so you can view it with your web browser. In this situation I'm using Firebird but you can use whatever.

Under Configuration, go to Actions. Create a new action called "View HTML" or something similiar and put this in the command line:
Code:
cat %f > ~/temp.html; MozillaFirebird ~/temp.html; rm ~/temp.html

Now whenever you want to view a certain email in html, you go to Tools>Actions> View HTML.

Yes it's, very simple and basic, but very cool. Show's the configurability of sylpheed. :)

You can also doule-click on the html part (at least in claws), but what about the images that comes with the email? This action will not show them in the html page, right?

I mean the
Code:

<img src='...'>

will not find the image. (Sorry, can't try it now, using windows...)

I don't think it will show the images if they are attached in the mail, but most of the email I get have the images hosted remotely. I didn't know you could double click on them :oops:

Hmmm.. I just checked one of the mails I received and there was no attachment to click on, but it was a mail with html in it. It seems as though there are two different types of html messages. One with an attachment, one without. This method works with the attachment-less type of html mail.

I tried:
Code:
USE="gtkhtml dillo" emerge  sylpheed-claws
, but that didn't do the trip. HTML gets rendered as plain text, but no images/layout showing... :?
