Comments unreadable in e-mail

  • my comments are unreadable in the e-mail that wordpress sends me each time a new one is posted. the content looks like this

    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=”utf-8″
    Mime-Version: 1.0
    Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
    Content-Transfer-Encoding: BASE64

    im using gmail… it would be nice if we could fix this, this did not happen in WP 1.2, every other 1.3 feature is working perfectly for me.

  • logging in would be good “doh!”

    Well, I will try to keep that in mind, but I did search the fourms… dont kill me yet :-p

    Doubt that you would have found anything in the forums about this but since I am using 1.3 I keep a link to the CVS by age in my bookmarks so I may keep up to date on the changes/additions (and the only thing I kill is time ; ).

    Huzzah. well, I will use that from now on, but I just updated functions and it didnt work…? I tried a comment and its still gibberish.

    looks like its this bug to me. http://mosquito.wordpress.org/bug_view_advanced_page.php?bug_id=0000263
    and its not fixed right now. so thats ok. at least I know what it is.

    I was wondering why I did not see that error in Thunderbird or IE and my comcast account as I have been getting daily notifications of spam comments : (

    See the bug report for my fix for this — it’s working for me just fine.

    Thanks, fixed it perfectly!

    offline, sindas, what exactly did you guys do as I’m having a hard time figuring out what fix to apply. thanks


    My emailcomments sent from WP 1.3 alpha 5 (12-04-2004 build) still coming to me (in Outlook (WinXP)) garbled. What fix is being used??

    be patient



    I am patient. It’s just that there’s seems to be some confusion between this and the password email formatting problem, which evidently *has* been fixed.
    It’s a trivial problem; more of an annoyance really.

    I have read http://wordpress.org/support/6/14467#post-84191 and have applied the nightly builds for the function.php etc. Email sent from WP still are garbled. I realize that the extra line causes an error. Do not the nightly builds “fix” this? What am I missing here?

    They don’t seem to. Just be patient with it. The Nightly Builds will never be perfect. At least you know that you got a comment. ^_-
