I've received HTML messages (newsletters) composed as a single image (about 3000 pixels high). Portions of the image are mapped to hyperlinks so that you can click on those areas and reach the associated URL.

The image is correctly displayed under roundcube but the tags are not working, as I can't click in the "links" to open the associated URLs.

The source code looks like:

This works on Thunderbird, Outlook, Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, and Horde, but not in roundcube.

Thanks for any help in the subject,

Do you want me to include here the plain-text "code" (headers included) as received?

I could also directly send a test message (not a forward) to a given email address (maybe addressed to somewhere that can be read and tested in a working roundcube)... this way you'd have a working example. Is there something like testaddress@roundcube.net?

I thought it was a bigger issue with MAP handling, but it was href and shape attributes for AREA handling issue. Fixed in fb53c80.

Is possible to fix it in 0.72? I mean, it's an easy / small patch or a simple code change that I could do directly in 0.72's source code?

I'm not sure I'm allowed to update from 0.72 to 0.9 in my server.
