Patch Email Fix Broken Formatting
After webOS 1.1, this fix is no longer necessary. Here it is anyway though:
There is a well known problem with the Pre's e-mail handling of forward and reply messages. (see http://forums.palm.com/palm/board/message?board.id=webossoftware&thread.id=884&view=by_date_ascending&page=1)
with the pre - if I reply to an email all the formatting is lost. eg -get an email, I reply to that email, all the people that I reply to lose all formatting when they view the message that I sent in reply - it is like all the hard returns are lost and they see just one string of content.. Do others experience this issue?
Here is a simple two-line fix for this annoying problem:
