This article was written for Thunderbird but also applies to Mozilla Suite / SeaMonkey (though some menu sequences may differ).


The EditHTML extension lets you edit the source of an HTML message that you are composing.

Another way to do that is:

  1. Highlight the contents of the existing message ("Ctrl+A" or "Edit -> Select All").
  2. Select "Insert -> HTML".
  3. Edit the code as desired.
  4. Press "Insert".

If Thunderbird's built-in support for HTML editing doesn't meet your needs you could install the External editor extension and use an external editor.
