HTML mail being sent as plain text

I've received a few e-mails from the forum today (responses to my post) which were HTML formatted but were interpreted as plain-text by my e-mail client. Viewing the message source showed that "Content-Type" was not declared.

Love this forum. Keep up the good work!

Re: HTML mail being sent as plain text


Thanks for your comments and compliments. When special tags are tossed into the post (such as a color or url), the mailer doesn't strip the code.

Because <>[] are acceptable characters in posts, the mailer essentially doesn't know what to strip. I'll forward your comments to the writers of wwwthreads to see if they have a workaround.
