Better Mu4e Message Rendering
When viewing an email message in Mu4e, HTML is converted to text using Emacs' built-in html2text by default. The results aren’t always very readable. Fortunately there are other options.
The first thing I tried (since I’m on a Mac) was this:
This converted things pretty well (and better than html2text) but it would lose all of the links and much of the text alignment was off.
I then read about
shr and changed my configuration like so:
This works very well. Most HTML emails are now nicely readable right in Emacs and the links are preserved. Plus, I can quickly jump to links by using the Tab key.
Of course I can still just press
a V to open any messages that really needs
to be seen as HTML right in my browser.
