A bit more on this topic,

A common thing to need to do is to remove some text from a subject when importing from a mailing list. Another common thing to do is to remove a footer from a message from mailing list.

It would be nice to have a third mangling pass to do custom things in addition to these two.

So I guess the suggestion is to add a specific footer removal mangling option and leave the current body mangling as something specific. You could even pre-populate the footer mangling with the generic email signature setting and then let the user customise it if they want.

Finally, this should be consistent across the mailing list, nntp syncing, XML aggregator, and any other syncing channels that come into being.

Cheers,

James.

This is for sure a welcomed addition. For the time being not having this feature you could use an external script after importing the maillist to filter more. At least, that is how I inted to do it.

FUDforum offers Subject and Body Mangling as documented at Mailing List Manager.

The signature/ footer is part of the message body. As such, Body Mangling can be used to alter or remove parts of the footer.
