I received a short mail (3 lines) from a Windows Phone. The text is shown in Jolla-Mail app twice with different font sizes. I assume one is the plain text and the other the html text.

When answering the mail only one text is quoted.

The mail contained following parts:

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="Windows-1252"
... plain text ...
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable
Content-Type: text/html; charset="Windows-1252"
... html text ...
Content-Type: image/jpeg; name="WP_xxxxxxxx_001.jpg"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="WP_xxxxxxxx_001.jpg"

Kmail or the N9 mail app doing it right and show only one text part.

Edit: Also short mails received from Thunderbird/Windows are shown twice (found in and still in

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-15; format=flowed
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
... plain text ...
Content-Type: multipart/related;
Content-Type: text/html; charset=ISO-8859-15
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
... html text ...
Content-Type: image/jpeg;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Disposition: inline;

Edit: The text from a short mail from N900 with image attachement is shown twice.

I would like to be able to define in settings whether to show text/plain or text/html when both are available.

@Penguin: I suggest to create a new request/question if that not already exists.
