Email summary removes bulleted items

If I write a post like this…

Discourse sends out an email summary like so…

Note that the bulleted content is removed from the summary. It’s not the worst thing in the world, but it seems like we shouldn’t have to change how we summarize our releases to save our users the click through.

Do you know if it’s Discourse or the email client doing the stripping?

In my experience If I’ve ever thought getting HTML to be cross-browser was work, getting HTML to be cross-email-client is off the scale more difficult.

Possible @neil could take a look next week.

Gmail and Mail.app both have the bulleted content missing, so I think it’s Discourse.

Discourse was stripping them. I added lists to the email excerpt creator, and they seem to render fine with default styling, at least in gmail.
