Summary0001353: Mantis sends HTML in text-only emails

Email arrives with HTML tags, but email is not recognized as HTML document. Tags appear inline in the document, making an illegible email.

Additional Information

Mantis needs to either strip HTML tags from outgoing email or create email of an HTML type so that tags display as HTML in user's clients.

TagsNo tags attached.

If you implement HTML email I think it would be best if it was an option (HTML or Plain Text).

I haven't found the HTML tags to be annoying.
You could simply request that users don't input them bypassing the problem.

@epu: and what is when you use mantis for debuging webprojects, and the reporter posts html code to fix a problem ? :) Thats the reason, where the strip_tags function is not used in the email functions, instead mantis use some str_replace() commands.

Ah, I figured that was what attachments were for (posting code). Our business does not do any development besides Mantis in PHP or HTML so I hadn't thought of that.

Suggest adding following features as separate feature requests and closing this bug;

  • option to send HTML-formatted e-mail instead of text e-mail.
  • option to display HTML inline with syntax colors in HTML-formatted email.
  • option to strip HTML from text-only e-mail
