Hi all,

CIVS originally sent text/plain emails. But it was useful to be able to 
embed links and to preserve election description formatting. The HTML it 
sends is pretty minimal -- I don't think it should set off reasonable 
spam filters. At least, I haven't heard this complaint before. Making 
HTML mail an option seems like a good idea, though there are already too 
many options for my taste. If someone wants to write that patch I'd be 
happy to include it.

I hope the election system has been working well for everyone otherwise.
