Feature Request: replace all line feeds for all WP default emails (6 posts)

    I think a lot of us have sites where 2 kinds of emails get sent out: WP default emails (that all sites send unless disabled) which are non-HTML, and emails sent by other plugins like WooCommerce and Gravity Forms that include HTML. The setting currently works for only 1 of those 2 kinds of WP-based emails. It either makes one look good and ruins the other, or vice-versa.

    How about an option that turns on "Replace all line feeds ("\n") by
    in the message body?" for all default, built-into-core WP emails, but turns it off for everything else? Since core emails are a finite and well documented set, why not just allow those to be automatically filtered and leave all the rest alone, instead of making us have to do custom development to get the best of both worlds?

    Seconded.

    Another wpMandrill + WooCommerce + Gravity Forums user here and have spent the better part of a weekend trying to navigate this mess.

    Currently have the "Replace all line feeds ("\n") by br in the message body?" option disabled just so WooCommerce and Gravity Forms emails work, but bbPress email notifications and the like have no linebreaks.

    I contacted them through their support. They were really cool and indicated that they're very aware of this issue and that updates/fixes are coming. But there's no ETA.

    We're currently working on overhauling the wpMandrill plugin to address some of these known issues. We're a really small team and working to make the best product possible, so this type of input is very valuable. While I don't have an ETA of when these new features will be in place, I can at the very least let you know that we're aware of them and have plans to address them.

    So good things are coming. We just have to wait.

    My ecommerce system mails out links with no html markup. Most email clients render plain text links clickable. However since wpMandrill adds HTML markup, those links are no longer clickable by default and this defeats the purpose for which I want to use Mandrill: to increase the deliverability of e-commerce purchases.

    This was a long winded way to say that I, too, would be very interested in a solution.
