I also have very readable text but from [email protected] Using Chrome and
GMail.

What are your email preferences set to on the forum's User CP? When I had it set to "Plain Text", emails with embedded HTML that were sometimes posted came through as raw html. So I changed it to HTML email. That worked great until JPSoft changed service providers or hosts or software or something recently.

I just changed it back to plain text to see if the gibberish goes away. However, the email still has the generic header and not the person who actually sent it.

I had always been on plain text. No gibberish. However, when the current
method for the forum was originally started, and on rare occasions with the
old service provider, and now full time the "sender" is incorrectly
reported. This is due to two nonconsecutive "From:" entries in the header,
one the immediate sender ([email protected]), and the other the originator, e.g.,
samintz. Rex had managed to correct this issue on the previous service
provider, now we need to wait for him to fixi t again.
