I recently upgraded my Claws-Mail software to 3.16 (64-bit). I now find that it no longer has an HTML plugin (Fancy, Dillo, etc). Does anyone know of a plugin to display the HTML in email in Claws-Mail?
I was able to get claws mail 3.17 to display html on ubuntu 18.04.
You would first need the dillo browser to help render the html:
sudo apt install dillo
If you have an older version of claws, it must be uninstalled (the version in the ubuntu 18.04 repo was 3.16):
sudo apt remove claws-mail
your config and mail is preserved
then install them:
sudo dpkg -i *.deb
after installation load the html plugin: Claws mail > configuration > plugins > load > Select "dillo.so"
after this you should be able to view html email. Opening images is disabled. to enable it go to Claws mail > configuration > preferences > plugins > dillo > and check "load remote links in mail"
if email is still being shown in plain text choose the email button on the right side of the mail email window
