Expand mail in a big window

Project description

License: AGPL-3

Mail full expand

This module was written to extend the functionality of messaging to support expanding messages in a big window and allow you to read its full content.

Odoo automatically tries to remove blockquotes and signatures from received mails. That is useful because it removes lots of distraction, but sometimes it removes important information.

Also, messages are narrow to fit in the conversations views, but sometimes you receive a mail with predefined width and cannot read it.

This module adds a button to all messages to read them in a floating window with their full contents.

See also: ‘mail_read_new_window’ module to open mail in a new browser window.


To use this module, you need to:

  • Go to any view with a message thread.
  • Click the Fully expand button (two arrows indicating separate directions).
