Is the html format being looked into?

    When I get messages now, the HTML is not being rendered as commands
    but instead I see all the tags. This happens when I read my gmail with
    IE 7.0.5730.13 and Chrome 0.2.149.30 and iPhone's Safari but not the
    built-in iPhone email app -- that one standout renders things well.

    I've seen others report this as well.

    I believe this started happening when the new vBulletin code was
    installed. I know it briefly went away when Rex said he undid it to
    address the email posting problems.

    Is this problem being looked into? I can suffer through the nigh
    illegible messages for a while if I know the developers are aware of
    it.

    When I sent that message / complaint, I received a copy of it that
    renders badly. I've since changed my forum options to be plain text,
    because the awful HTML was just too hard to read.

    Every one of them. I'm viewing/posting via the web right now, but every one that comes to my email box has a bunch of HTML tags in them, but the email message itself is opened up as Plain Text. Could it possibly be related to my using Outlook 2003 instead of a newer version? I don't know what triggers outlook to load a file as HTML instead of Plain Text, but that seems to be the problem.

    With email. I'm sorry I wasn't clear.

    I am using Gmail through three different browsers, and once through
    the iPhone's internal mail app. The three browsers are IE, Chrome, and
    Safari(iPhone). All those render horribly. The iPhone internal mail
    app works fine.

    When I use the forum web interface, things look ok. The same messages
    that are in my inbox are awful.

    It's not an Outlook issue. I use Lotus Notes and have the same problem. I
    changed my preferences on the web site to send plain text and now I get
    readable email without the tags. However, unless a sender signs his/her
    name to the message, I have no idea who sent it because they *all* come
    from neil@jpsoft.com.
