where can i set the email-format in email-notifications?
(The mail i get if "Notify when a reply is posted" is checked and a reply is posted)
Because i get some html-soup mails (mails with visible html-tags), instead of plaintext or real html-mails.

Ah, yes, i found it, the third last item in the config, thank you!
And is there a way to use the HTML-version?
Is this a (known) bug, or an error at my side?
With this html i get an email with visible html-tags.
But my email-clients doesn't identify it as html-mail.

Even when i get a notification from THIS FORUM, it is html-tag-soup.
So the developer of jforum got that problem too.
Lets wait till version 2.1.9 (or 3.7.8 :-) ) i guess it will be fixed one day :-) [originally posted on jforum.net by franc]
for my instance at roblet.org running (a now slightly modified) version 2.1.8 I found out that the basic reason is that the global admin settings have had been set to TEXT and that users own settings are simply ignored by the code (2.1.8).
So the simple solution is to set global settings to HTML.
It's not a perfect solution since user settings are still ignored - but most mail readers should be able to handle text/html content.
In addition I also learned why the application doesn't respond with localized mails ... on admin page "configuration" you have to set the corresponding paths.
But be warned the translations are not in sync with the standard english ones.
(Just in case you have similar questions ...)

Well, the actual reason - even for the original problem - is somewhat more complex.
When someone replies to a thread the file templates/mail/mailNewReply.txt gets read and interpreted. This file contains control information telling that in case you don't want the contents of the reply getting send some text (not containing any HTML tags) is returned and otherwise some other file with some other text is used.
The other file is templates/mail/mailNewReplyWithContents.txt which - and now it comes - contains the body of the mail you're getting with HTML tags! The content of the reply gets added on the fly to this body.
So JForum in Version 2.1.8 will always send mails containing HTML in case of a reply to a thread and you being interested in the content.
Thus they simply seem either to have the global settings set to TEXT as we had - or are running a different version. [originally posted on jforum.net by hagen]
