Using HTML in Auto Confirmation Email
August 29, 2007

Great plugin, but I'm having some problems getting HTML auto confirmation emails working.

I've tested it extensively with different email readers, and different browsers. They all have the same problems; emails refuse to display HTML. I'm really trying to get a couple of hosted images displayed.

It's almost as though the HTML does not exist. Sending the same email through PHPlist works fine, so I'm wondering if there is something I'm not doing right?

Any ideas?

Test it for yourself at:…..t-involved


Any help would be really appreciated.

I just tried and the email looked perfectly fine. Image and footer area are layed out nicely (email client: Thunderbird).

I did notice though, that your HTML does not use '=3D' to represent '='. Many mail clients have issues with just a '=' when the email encoding is set to 'quoted-printable'.

For the time being, you could replace all = with =3D or I can send you v5.4 (beta) that should do it for you.

Thanks for the help and sorry to trouble you. I've got it working properly now, and had just forgotten the simple stuff!

I'll grab the v5.4 when you release it properly.

Thanks again.
