Invisible text is a problem only for humans, not for machines. So, it
sounds as though the problem you're describing relates to reviewing
messages, manually (with your eyes), and taking some action as a result.

If this is so, why not read the messages in *plaintext*, so you see the
"invisible text" and can therefore act accordingly?
