I just received an email from SF stating that 1 Question Has 3 Answers - Server Fault.

Since I check email from a text-based client, here's what I see:

Please read this email from a location that can display HTML emails

Why not send a text version of the email as well? It would be very helpful, instead of telling me to use something else.

Specially on SF, its likely to be a lot of people using text based mail clients. –  perbert Sep 9 '09 at 13:10

Great. Now I am afraid of the day our marketing droid wants to get rid of the text-only part in our spam mails consumer information on the account that those tech-geeks over on so/su/sf don't send plain text either.

Ok, we have a rudimentary GeneratePlainTextFromHtml function in there now. Results may not be optimal, but for most of our emails, which are minimally HTML formatted, it should be reasonable.

Much better. FYI - The messages come through with Windows specific newlines, and so in VIM, I see lots of ^M's all over the place... –  Glen Solsberry Oct 15 '09 at 17:14
