For development purposes, I need to view an HTML email as plain text, using Yahoo Mail. How do I do that?
If you are using Google Chrome then Right Click anywhere in the message body and click on "Inspect Element". Now find the IFrame with class "messageArea". Right click on all content between
</iframe> and and click on "Copy as HTML" button. Paste it on any text editor (like Notepad). This is the source of the message body.
One trick to view an html message in plain text in Yahoo mail:
- view the message, then click on forward
- click on the << ("switch to plain text") control. The message is immediately converted to plain text. You can then forward it to yourself or read it as is or cut and paste.
The << control is on the same line as the "Send" button, font change and spell check controls.
