Hello Yutaka,

No, I wanted to replace 'script' with 'deleted' in the html body but I
forgot the '/' at the end (only in my email). The correct line:
Body-Filter: C:\cygwin\bin\sed.exe "s/script/deleted/"

This -sed option is not in the manual! But it works great! You should update
the documentation! :)
Of course I don't want to use external programs to filter the body part of
the html response, I just haven't found a better solution.

This built-in sed has the same functionality as the unix command sed has?

The best solution would be, if any kind of regular expressions could be used
to replace strings in incoming-outgoing streams. Is there any chance to
implement this sometime?

I also tried HTTPCONF=kill-tag:SCRIPT to disable JavaScript but it didn't
work when only a simple <script> was in the body (it was killed if it was
<script >) Is this a bug or a feature? :)

Yes, I see those error lines.

Thank you for your response and help! Best regards,
