Hello everybody,

currently we are using roundcube at http://webmail.ntua.gr/, serving 
more than 35 mail servers in our university and we are extremely happy 
with it.

There is a bug reported by users that affects certain messages when 
forwarded, or replied, inline. These messages contain an HTML part (just 
it or plus an alternative plain part and other attachments). When 
forwarding or replying and "Compose HTML messages" is set to "never" the 
HTML part is used but several pieces of the text are missing.

Such a message, slightly modified, is available at:


The pieces of text dropped out are the ones that are highlighted blue in 
the HTML part. It has, probably, something to do with roundcube's HTML 
parser and the fact that the syntax of the HTML part contains many errors.

Tested in versions 0.8-RC and older (back to 0.5).
