Some HTML emails unreadable (text too small, not zoomable)

Every time I get an email from my twitter account I (barely) cannot read it, because the text is too small, and it is not possible to pinch-zoom in. This is because I cannot set the mail client to only show me plaintext (let alone switch on occasion) and, of course, because the canny people at twitter put a user-scalable=0 and maximum-scale=1.0 in the head of their html e-mails, for whatever reason.

Workaround is forwarding the mail, where I get the plaintext version because thats my default.

I not only heavily encourage #14619 very much, I also encourage the mail client and the browser(-engine) should disregard those pagewide viewport-restrictions altogether in the future as they just don't make sense.

The silica mail patch by ferlanero solved this for me.

It seems Jolla peeps really do not use SFOS as their daily drivers. Every mail from TJC/askbot I dare to open because of the size and readability!
