Observed behaviour

The problem is that when I am sending messages via the mail outlook web interface, and your plugin (adblock or adblock plus) is enabled in safari, the strange links appears in the body of the message and the spam filter is blocking it.
The first attachment is the dump of the email (with adblock enabled, safari) that I have sent from my email to same address because I can not send to any external one because o the spam filter is not allow to go it out. Look that the actual email text: "empty message" is at the bottom, so before there is an html comment opens.
The second attachment is outgoing email with adblock removed. See that it is clean.
I have not checked if the same happens when using gmail, but when I am sending email from Roundcube mail web interface, outgoing messages is clean.

This happens only on Safari, but firefox adblock or adblock plus does not behave this way.

Expected behaviour

  • Resolution set to duplicate
  • Status changed from new to closed

This issue has been reported before, see #369. However I couldn't reproduce it with Adblock Plus. Please note that AdBlock is a different extension, developed by somebody else.
