Hi Discourse Community —
Something I’ve noticed for a few years, but only bothered to look into today, is that for emails generated by Discourse, the “Text/PLAIN” version of the mail (as opposed to the “Text/HTML” version) seems to be rendered with too much vertical space in my mail viewer, as though it’s double-spaced. Digging into it a bit, it looks to me that this is because the text version uses both carriage return (CR) and linefeed (LF) to mark the ends-of-lines (where my mail reader’s preference would be to just use LF).
Is this something that is within my ability to configure as a site administrator? (e.g., a “text-email-end-of-line-character(s)” setting).
PS — Screenshots for the curious:
