Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 153 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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
