Universal Email 3.0.7 Dot Release Available

A dot release for Universal Email is available in the Download Center of our website. Log in and visit downloadcenter.php. Click on Universal Email and download the mxp from the Extensions section.

It is best practice to uninstall your current version before installing the new version.

This dot release fixed the following bugs:

- syntax error occurred when sending an email containing an attachment using PEAR for SMTP.
- Help buttons didn't load context-specific page in Dreamweaver 8.
- JavaScript error occurred when finishing the Universal Email Wizard, or attempting to edit the email body on a PowerPC running OSX.
- HTML emails weren't displaying in Entourage 2008 when using PEAR for SMTP.
- emails sent from a Linux-based server coming through as plain text with headers.
- email body contents were lost when inspecting an applied Universal Email server behavior when 2 or more of the server behavior existed on the same page.

/WA_Universal_Email/mail_PHP.php -> WA_StripTags()

i get a php error saying that the wa_striptags() function isn't found. i see where it's being used but i don't see where it is defined. i commented this line out but i'm not sure what the ramifications are. i did notice that email that gets sent out has html tags in it but the email reader (gmail website) doesn't display the email as html (in other words, all the tags are displayed as raw html).

> find . -type f -print0 | xargs -0 grep -i wa_striptags
./WA_Universal_Email/mail_PHP.php:# $mailBody = WA_StripTags($mailBody) . "<multipartbreak>" . $mailBody;

also, how do i see which version of WA_Universal_Email i am using?

To see which version of Universal Email, you could just open the Adobe Extension Manager and look at the Universal Email and Version Number.

figured it out

it works now. i added the following code to WA_Universal_Email/MailFormatting_PHP.php:

# 08 Aug 2010 ---- php_tip_how_strip_html_tags_web_page
function WA_StripTags($inStr) {
/* Get the file's character encoding from a <meta> tag */
preg_match( '@<meta\s+http-equiv="Content-Type"\s+content="([\w/]+)(;\s+charset=([^\s"]+))?@i', $inStr, $matches);
$encoding = $matches[3];

/* Convert to UTF-8 before doing anything else */
$utf8_text = iconv($encoding, "utf-8", $raw_text);

/* Strip HTML tags and invisible text */
$utf8_text = strip_html_tags($utf8_text);

/* Decode HTML entities */
$utf8_text = html_entity_decode($utf8_text, ENT_QUOTES, "UTF-8");

return $utf8_text;

# 08 Aug 2010 --- php_tip_how_strip_html_tags_web_page
* Remove HTML tags, including invisible text such as style and
* script code, and embedded objects. Add line breaks around
* block-level tags to prevent word joining after tag removal.
function strip_html_tags( $text )
$text = preg_replace(
/* Remove invisible content */
/* Add line breaks before and after blocks */
' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ', ' ',
"\n\$0", "\n\$0", "\n\$0", "\n\$0", "\n\$0", "\n\$0",
"\n\$0", "\n\$0",
$text );
return strip_tags( $text );
