Discourse ate (parts of) my mail

Dear forum administrators,

last night Discourse seems to have eaten bigger parts of my mail. From my original posting here actually only the “Hey,” was posted to the forum and on the mailing list. I did verify that the mail reply I sent was complete. Any ideas how that happened and how to prevent this in the future?

Cheers Oleg

P.S. Also, the formatting looks weird in the HTML interpretation of my mail.

Thanks for the heads-up. I’ll take a look tomorrow and see if I can find something.

I think what happened is that Discourse interpreted the rest of the email as part of the quoted text. I’m not sure what part of the email triggered this, in terms of newlines I don’t see a difference between the raw text of the email you’ve mentioned and this post from you.

So I don’t really have a solution for you for now, but please let me know if it occurs more often. Maybe we can nail this down on something in the future.

Alright, will do. :slight_smile:

Are there any best-practices to getting Discourse to work right? Does properly Usenet-style quoting help? Is top-quoting encouraged or discourages?

Is it better if it’s HTML-only? plain-only? If it’s both, which does it consider authoritative?
