Return of the missing Yahoo HTML email stripping bug


(Michael Downey) #1

Continuing the discussion from HTML email signature not being stripped out of notification reply:

It’s back, although now with extra email quoting inclusion as well. :slightly_smiling:

Yes this is for @zogstrip

Anyone who wants the original message source via Mess feel free to ping me.


(Régis Hanol) #4

This should now be fixed for good :wink:


(Michael Downey) #5

Or not… :frowning:


(Régis Hanol) #6

Can you send me the raw email?


(Michael Downey) #7

Of course; check your messages. :wink:

Looks like it’s working as expected here. (Except for the fact that we can’t properly identify user signatures and new lines, which are really hard problems)

Is there a preferred format for email signatures that is easily strippable by Discourse? If so we, could let our members know the format.


(Wes Osborn) #10

Looks like this is optimized for stripping out Mobile signatures:

Our biggest offenders come from Desktop clients, for example:

In our case, we could gently encourage our users to proceed their signatures with something like: --------------------<line break> if that is acceptable.

Has this option already been considered: Open sourcing our email signature parsing library ?
