c-hey and Twitter DM emails: separated at birth?
It’s nice to see people paying attention to the text version of their multipart/alternative emails. I’ve tried a great deal of IMAP clients, but I still keep coming back to PINE1, the first client I ever used.
Most text/plain parts of emails are:
Heads up: if you just send text/html, plain text clients can at least try and render something useful.
Very badly converted HTML-to-text versions of the HTML.
Again, most plain text clients can do a better job.
Links to an HTML version of the email.
That’s okay, I guess, but I’d rather have the content.
1 And now with Alpine, it’s available under a useful license. “;tfcron^Madxy” is short for deleting all emails from “Cron” and expunging the current folder. This is where the power is. Alpine is the vi of mail clients.
