Another HTML email oddity

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I receive messages from e-bay whose message details contain this:

From: eBay <ebay@xxxxxxxx>

"name": "View details"
. . .

But SM does not offer the option to display this as HTML.  Instead I see plain
text that looks like this:

SM header . . .
Priority:   	Normal
Options:   	View Full Header | View Printable Version | Download this as a file
| View Message Details

body { width: 100% !important; -webkit-text-size-adjust: 100% !important;
-ms-text-size-adjust: 100% !important; -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased
!important; margin: 0 !important; padding: 0 0 0 !important; font-family:
Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif !important; background-color:#f9f9f9}

"@context": "";,
"@type": "EmailMessage",
"action": {
"@type": "ViewAction",
"name": "View details"
"description": "View details"

I have no idea why this is so but I see the same problem from some of the
utilities that insist on sending bills via html email.  If there is a fix for
this then I would like to know what it is.
