From the snippet you send, the html is not an attachment, it’s the html part in a multipart/alternative body (such as sent when you check "send both text and html" in, ie, thunderbird). When processing this type of part, recoll indexes the text/plain alternative, not the the text/html one, because the text content is supposedly the same, and the text/plain part requires less processing. Is this what you are seeing ? Or no indexing at all ?

If there is another issue than the one described above, a sample file would be very useful. You can send it directly to me (jfd at recoll org).
