Had a user reply to a post (in a restricted subcategory, for what it’s worth) via HTML email using Microsoft Outlook 2010, and the original message was not stripped out. Checked the incoming email and nothing out-of-the-ordinary about it. On our Discourse site (latest), the reply post appeared as follows.
The same thing happened when the user replied to a PM via email.
Interestingly, the reply wouldn’t (shouldn’t?) have been processed because the reply message was only “Agreed!” which is only 7 characters, well under the minimum character requirement of 20.
