I’m not able to view the digest in the new format and was wondering
whether it’s because I use a Mac computer. Is anyone else using a Mac
and having the same problems? Alternatively, if anyone has a Mac but
can view the new format, please could you advise me of what settings
I have to change to be able to view it properly. For some reason, I
AM able to view other emails in HTML format, including the very
annoying, numerous spam emails that one gets daily, but I can’t view
the new Orchid format.
I have tried the “Mail”, “Preferences”, “Viewing”, “Display remote
images in HTML messages” thing numerous times, but it doesn’t seem
to work. My husband has also tried typing particular commands into
the “Terminal” (equivalent of old DOS screen), again to no avail. Any
advice would be much appreciated. Many thanks.
Orchid Digest is now distributed in “multipart-alternative” format.
That means the email is embedded with BOTH the plain-text version,
and the HTML version, of the message. Your email client automaticlly
chooses the most suitable version to disply on your system.
How to Turn On or Off HTML Rendering on a MAC OS
Follow these steps to turn on or off HTML rendering, as desired:
- Open Mail.
- Choose Mail > Preferences.
- Click the Viewing icon in the Preferences window.
- Select or deselect (as desired) the checkbox for Display images
and embedded objects in HTML messages".
If you prefer to display plain-text part instead of the more
"stylish" HTML or Rich-Text parts. While this cannot be configured
via the GUI, it can be from the command line.
defaults write com.apple.mail PreferPlainText -bool TRUE
defaults delete com.apple.mail PreferPlainText
Mail.app should be closed while you do this.
