Rich Text E-mail in 3.8

I have my 3.8.1 instance up and running and was looking into getting RT
to send out Rich Text e-mail messages (correspondence) without much
luck. I came across this in the archives:

From http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/rt/users/77177#77177

i only see plain text after save. and i
get plain text email.

You need to tweak your templates slightly in order to send html mail,
but it seems to tickle a bug.

You should get mail about a bug report in a few minutes.

Does this mean its not working yet (and its not just me :slight_smile: or do I need
to “tweak” my templates. If so, how would I go about doing that?

I do have PreferRichText set in my RT_SiteConfig.pm file and am using
the WYSIWYG editor.

Thanks all

As I said in that email, a ticket has been opened. It is a blocker
for 3.8.2,
and you can find it on rt3.fsck.com ticket 11013

Documentation and a fix will be included in 3.8.2

Thanks Kevin,
Didn’t mean to push, just wasn’t exactly sure what “tickle a bug” meant
