Yes, but it may well depend on how the e-mail was assembled.
A message Cut&Paste from a web page formatted with both
<table>..</table> and <ol>...</ol> formatting and displayed using Brave
to construct a new e-mail written, sent and received using Evolution
with the message composer set to use plaintext gave a single block of
body text that didn't contain any HTML formatting.
However, with composer preferences set to use HTML formatting, Evolution
restructured the HTML that was cut and pasted in as an attachment with
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="attachment.html"
Content-Type: text/html; charset="utf-8"; name="attachment.html"
as a preamble. and all the HTML formatting pretty much rewritten from
scratch and formatted as a block rather that keeping the original page's
indent structure. The plaintext section again had all HTML formatting
So, it would be interesting to know how similar the output of other
browser/MUA combos is to what Brave+Evolution generates. I would not be
surprised if the e-mail content has a close dependence on what MUA is
used and how its composer preferences are set - and possibly which
browser is being used as well.
