Error description

  • When Android Verse clients send mail, it is formatted as HTML
    (text/html content-type).  Most human read mail clients will
    display this HTML content.  However, there are some (relatively
    old) clients that might only display or otherwise rely on the
    plain text (text/plain content-type) content of the mail.
    Therefore, the Traveler server attempts to ensure that both
    text/plain and text/html content is available on the mail when
    it is sent (adding text/plain based on the text/html if the
    text/plain does not already exist).  An issue was identified
    where if the HTML contained a <p> tag that the text/plain
    content might lose the line feed characters (new lines) causing
    too much text to appear to run together on a single line rather
    than multiple lines.  This Traveler server change exposes the
    configuration options as well as removing the <p> tag from the
    default list.  This change improves some text/plain content of
    the mails by allowing the line feeds to remain.
