I've finally managed to get so that I can get emails from Eudora on a Windows XP box (don't judge :p ) into my Dovecot IMAP server (and Maildir).

When I look at the emails in RoundCube, they're not "right".. The Emails from Eudora are "x-html" format.

Code: [Select]
<x-html>
<html><head><style type="text/css"><!-- DIV {margin:0px;} --></style></head><body><div style="font-family:times new roman,
new york, times, serif;font-size:12pt"><DIV>Starting this Monday May 17th at 630 is the meeting for the 40 frame summer league, then
bowling to follow.&nbsp; If anyone is interested please let me know sometime before 6 Monday....either by email or by calling me at
XXXYYYZZZZ.&nbsp; </DIV>
<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV>Thanks</DIV>
<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV>Also...Please keep June 12th open for the next 40 frame tournament.</DIV>
<DIV>&nbsp;</DIV>
<DIV>Thanks Again</DIV>
<DIV>Mike</DIV></div><br>

      </body></html>
</x-html>

They show up as either -
  • Blank
  • Plain Text version of the text above


Does anyone have suggestions for how to convert these to a format that RoundCube will recognize as HTML Emails.. Or even just convert them to plain text ?

Thanks for any help.

If HTML emails are showing up blank make sure the PHP DOM extension is enabled.

New HTML based emails show properly.. These are Eudoras bastardized way of doing emails..

Worst case scenario I'll need to create something that does a search/replace on the X-HTML fix the issues..

removing the X-HTML doesn't work either..
