How to disable HTML notification emails - plain text emails instead

HI,

how can I disable HMTL notification emails? Our security and usability policy told us only to use plain txt-mails but no html-mails. But I haven’ t found a confuguration option for that.

HI,

plaintext-emails aren’t default - hmmm what about editing these templates, how is described here: https://docs.nextcloud.com/server/13/admin_manual/configuration_server/email_configuration.html ? I cant’t find this option in admin menue!

White text on white background isn’t very helpful in eMails. m) So, how can I correct this strange email-settings?

Best regards

This is a mistake in the documentation - we haven’t removed that yet.

WRT the white text on white background, that is because you set that color in the theming app…
See https://github.com/nextcloud/server/issues/7229#issuecomment-364575856

If you really have to modify the templates, see:


The emails should have a proper flat-text fall-back so clients can simply ignore the HTML…

Cheers,

Hello Jo!

This is a mistake in the documentation - we haven’t removed that yet.

O.K. so far so good, I understand! Documentation ist the first place where I search.

WRT the white text on white background, that is because you set that color in the theming app…

That’s right, I customized the WEB-GUI(!) to our company-preferences. Reusing those (color)definitions in HTML-eMails is - pardon - a very boring idea! A better way were if I could set up plain-text-emails or if I could define different colors for the HTML-pages witch are send by email.

Really? I should tell my users if the have an “empty” email (white textcolor on white background) in their inbox, they should switch to text-view, 'cause I’m to stupid to send textmails or falsecolored mails? Really? I’m not sure, but my boss will kick me in my back for that! :frowning: BTW, I’m a sysadmin and not an app-developer, so normally I would search for an configoption and not for patching sourcodes or writing own apps. Nexloud has done a grait job, but sending emails are’nt your business and it were grait if the nextcloud-developer would reactivate an editor on the admin-menue or better an option do send plain-text emails as default! j2ct!
