I noticed "<3" appears at the very end of the my stackoverflow notification emails (after the zip code). Is this problem related to gmail?

Stack Overflow loves you! <3

This is the actual code in the email:

<span title="because we care" style="color:maroon">&lt;3</span>

So to answer your question, this is intentional and not a problem with GMail.

    Next time I should tilt my screen 90° counter-clockwise before asking a question. :P

    You mean, Stack Overflow sends out HTML messages? Ugh!

  • @kjanz1899 "♥" instead of "<3" could have done the trick too I guess.
