Hi list and devs
Thanks for making claws.
I'm receiving lately lots of mails from people who mix up Outlook
with Word/Writer: they are sending entire documents with embedded
images and whatnot by HTML-mail. I have given up to request them to
change - instead I'm adapting myself, with the power of open-source.
I'm opening these mails with an external browser, neither firefox nor
chromium want to show the images, because they do not find them.
Claws saves them as
in the mimetmp-dir and the HTML file looks for
cid:image019.jpg at 01D4E0BA.822EA1A0
image019.jpg at 01D4E0BA.822EA1A0
is the Content-ID-tag of the attachment.
There are several problems: one is the that, chrome at least, does not
know what to do with the `cid:`-tag in the src-field and the other is
the generated filename.
Is there anything which already has been done to make this work somehow
If not, I'm ready to get my hands dirty if I'd get some advice from
