HTML sanitizing and saving preferences across log-in

Hello you all,

it seems like we reached a milestone with the implemented saving of preferences without being influenced by the log-in and log-out process.

That’s great.

In the course of this achievement, I’d like to remind the rb-team to maybe think about getting rid of the weird adjustment option at the right corner above every e-mail.

“Show: Text HTML Images for Alle Senders This sender”

I’m sure there is a more decent way, to implement these options in another beautiful and decent blue pictogram, besides the other pictograms. The last weeks it didn’t even work at all and even though there’s now the saving of preferences across log-ins, it’s still buggy.

I’m using runbox only as a private e-mail for now, so I want to see images and html. For optical reasons this line is mildly annoying. Also the sentence that my e-mail has been sanitized for security reasons?!? It seems to be not affected at all by my adjustments, so why do I need to know? Glad runbox is taking care of my safety, but to be honest… that’s the main reason why I chose runbox, so no need to tell me all the time. :grinning:

If I’m the only one that cares for these visual-things (which are mostly very individual), just ignore this topic.

Kind regards,

I personally like that feature being available for every email because I don’t want to see HTML or have it enabled for every email, even for email from the same sender if the HTML can be avoided. I like choosing what HTML I option I want for each email.

Unfortunately, using HTML is required to read at least half of the email I receive from online purchases and other transactions because the email message often isn’t simple text. An example, after making an online purchase from the words in the email receipt are displayed over a background and can only be read when HTML is enabled.

The most practical change would be to switch the HTML options to a drop down menu with “Show HTML” as the displayed text for the drop down menu.

I think there is a way to fulfill both our needs and wishes.

We for example get a lot of advertises, informations and product pictures from our distributors which are mostly integrated directly into the mail. Also we get a lot of designs which we share among us.

So the best way would be, to be able to choose the best option on one’s own behalf (give permanent permission to show HTML and/or images and the choice to set HTML and images for every e-mail, like now). The time everything runs smoothly, features and individual settings should be targeted here by the developers/staff.

Unfortunately the saving across log-ins doesn’t work for me anymore.

Well… let’s see what the future brings for runbox.

Kind regards,

Great idea! It would be better for the HTML options to be changed to permanent settings.
