A small howto.
I got this from here: http://shallowsky.com/blog/tech/email/mutt-viewing-html-mail.html
Here is the simplified version:
With this tip you will be able to open the complete HTML message content in a browser using e.g. F10 in Mutt.
Akkana wrote a python script that will extract a message including its mime-attachements into a temporary folder and open it with Firefox.
- Download the viewhtmlmail script.
- Save it to e.g.:
- Make it executeable:
chmod +x ~/.local/bin/viewhtmlmail
- Put this into your .muttrc:
# macro index <F10> "<pipe-message>~/.local/bin/viewhtmlmail\n" "View HTML in browser" # macro pager <F10> "<pipe-message>~/.local/bin/viewhtmlmail\n" "View HTML in browser"
Now restart mutt and enjoy reading HTML-Mail in your Firefox by pressing F10.
