I am a developer with a plugin in the WordPress.org plugin repository. When I check in a new revision (eg svn commit ...), I get (or rather my spam folder gets) an E-mail about the commit. Since the message has a content-type of text/html, it gets a large spam score and lands in my spam folder. I set the spam scoring for pure HTML messages high for two main reasons: spammers often send pure HTML messages as it is easier to implement phishing messages that way. And secondly because *I* don't use an E-Mail client that can display HTML messages (this is by *design* -- DON'T tell me I should 'upgrade' my E-Mail client to one that can handle HTML E-Mail -- that is something *I* WILL NOT DO).
Is there some way to change how the check in messages are sent -- that is, is there something I can configure to change this behaviour. If not, *I* would like to make a feature request to ask that such a feature be added. If someone could point to where this is coded, *I* could probably code up this feature my self.
