Entourage 2004 (11.1) Bad text format for Multipart text

Post by stephan.ma » Fri, 11 Feb 2005 19:44:51


My Entourage version: Entourage 2004 (11.1) French
System: Mac G5 Panther version: 10.3.7

Problems: Some mails that i received in HTML multipart text are
unreadable,
When i do a reply on those mails, i can see the text in a readable
format. I don't know what's happening.

This is the source code of a corrupted mail:

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
boundary="----=_NextPart_001_0001_B19D0828.9A6D2357"

------=_NextPart_001_0001_B19D0828.9A6D2357
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=iso-8859-1
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Anyone know how to debug that, because all the staff here (200
people) have switched in Entourage 2004.

Thx for all

I believe you can resolve this issue by changing one of the Entourage
preferences.
-Click on Preferences in the Entourage Menu
-Under General Preferences, click on "Security"
-Under "HTML Options" take the checkmark out of "Display Complex HTML in
messages"

Changing this preference should let you see these emails without error.

You are seeing badly-formatted HTML as rendered by the "complex HTML"
engine. When you Reply, you are seeing the text rendered by Entourage's
"native" simple HTML (i.e. formatted text) engine, since that's the only
sort of HTML you can compose in Entourage. If it's showing correctly there,
it means that you'd see it OK if you turned off the preference to "view
complex HTML" in Preferences/Security. (That also means you won't see tables
or have the option to "download pictures" for the 99% of complex HTML
messages which _are_ properly formatted, though.) I've only seen this once
myself.

Yes, this is a known 'display issue' with a very small percentage of emails.
Maybe non-US languages are more susceptible.
