The current text of the messages I get buries the member's name in the text:
You received this email because the topic "Need help with a project" in the Swing / AWT / SWT forum has received a reply from member Knute Snortum since your last visit.
You may use the following URL to read the messages. You will not get more notifications until you read the topic.

Could it be highlighted or exposed for easier reading?

Or it might be even better to remove them from the narrative:
You received this email because a topic to which you have subscribed has received a reply.

Topic:  "Need help with a project" (link)

Member: Knute Snortum  (link)

No further notifications will be issued until the topic has been read.

Looks good.  The two important items: the topic and member should be easy to see.

I think "You received this email"  is redundant. Just be short and quick, and get to the message already!
