Description Bob Gustafson 2005-02-28 21:26:40 UTC
Description of problem:

 This is a request for enhancement.

It would be nice to be able to configure mail so that the recipient
receives text with the same number of returns as the sender actually
keyboarded into the text.

I sent a test message to myself (a different system - viewer not
evolution) and it had extra returns inserted into the text. These were
in locations not related to the soft wrap formatting of the evolution
composer, but they were extra returns nevertheless.

These extra returns may be inserted as part of the email standard -
don't know, but wish they were not there.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

[user1@hoho2 ~]$ rpm -q evolution
[user1@hoho2 ~]$

How reproducible:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send text email with minimum of returns (long, wrapped paragraph)
2. Receive above email
3. Check message for extra returns
Actual results:

  More returns than what I expected to be sent.

Expected results:

  Same number of returns received as keyboarded.

Additional info:

  Eudora on Mac is receiving program.

  I can etherreal the outgoing and incoming data if needed to nail the
point of insertion of returns.

Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.

Thank you!

The distribution against which this bug was reported is no longer supported,
could you please reproduce this with the updated version of the currently
supported distribution (Fedora Core 6, or Fedora 7, or Rawhide)? If this issue
turns out to still be reproducible, please let us know in this bug report.  If
after a month's time we have not heard back from you, we will have to close this

Setting status to NEEDINFO, and awaiting information from the reporter.

Thanks in advance.
