Description Daniel Berrange 2012-05-21 06:19:17 EDT
Description of problem:
With the upgrade to bz 4.2, the format of emails sent out has changed from plain text, to multipart HTML+text.

While it is possible to alter personal login preferences to switch back to plain text only, this only works for BZ emails you receive directly. I get a great many email alerts indirectly via mail aliases or mailing lists, where I have no control over the email format. 

The site default should be put back to plain text only and let people *opt-in* to get HTML format.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
4.2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View a BZ email alert
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
Multipart HTML + text

Expected results:
plain text only

The text is sent as multipart/alternate. You can configure your mail client to display the text only portion.

Additionally if you are the alias or mailing list owner, you can send an e-mail to bugzilla-requests@redhat.com to change the e-mail format preference for you.
