Thunderbird and ML mode - peculiar indentation


#1

Hi,
it seems like some of our users who prefer accessing through the ML interface using Thunderbid have this peculiar issue that at the beginning of the paragraphs an indentation of 5 or 6 blank spaces are added.

This would not be a problem if not that Discourse interprets those blank spaces as an “inline code” markdown.

This is what happens

I suspect that this is a Thunderbird problem but maybe there’s some knowledge to be gained here too :stuck_out_tongue:

So, can anyone give any suggestion about this problem: either removing the indentation from Thunderbird or the markdown coding from Discourse?

For the moment I solved selecting the whole mssage with Ctrl + A and deleting it all with Del.

At this point, whatever I write is considered body of the message and won’t be added any formatting at the moment of sending.

Could you send a couple of these emails to regis.hanol@discourse.org?

Let me see if it happens by answering your message through Thunderbird.

Seems it happens here too.

A detail I forgot to mention: the line must be longer than 80 characters (it needs to go to a new line) for the indentation to be added.

I will send you the e-mail directly, but the issue does not seem to appear in that case, only when answering to Discourse.
I don’t know if it’s because the other e-mail services get rid of the indentation or because it’s actually added by discourse.
