Subject: I get text-mails instead of HTML mails.
There are several possible reasons why this is the case:

If you are using Wordpress 2.2 there is a bug in the mail-function. I wrote a fix for that. It's called Mailfix.

Otherwise there somewhere between my PN and the Mail server this option is overwritten. I tested WP 2.1 & 2.3 and it should work. There are two likely scenarios for this to happen:

  • Some mailing plugin is making trouble
  • The mailer is making trouble

If you have a Mailing plugin please try deactivating it. If that does help please contact the author of the mailing plugin.

The second option is more likely. The mailer is a server configuration thing. It therefore depends on your hoster's settings which mailer is used with which options. There is not much I can do. If you have WP 2.3 you might want to give WP Mail SMTP a chance and send your mail via a SMTP Server.

Turns out my problem was with a plugin called "New User Email Set Up".  I'll let the author know.  Thanks for your help.

FYI: The author of "New User Email Setup" has updated his plugin and is now compatible with "Post Notification".
Thanks.
