    How do I make the notification email text only?

    How do I make the notification email text only? Some of my forms are using html in the notification and I prefer text for this.

    You can delete the <html> source code form the notification email text editor. Simply click on the <> button and delete the content, I have created this demo video for you, please see below:

    Thanks. Did that. Then the raw source for the email still comes through with markup. This isn't a problem for viewing, just for formatting my applescript response to the email. I may have to adjust the script to compensate for the markup.

    In another thread, "Note: If you are looking for a way to setup text only email, please do note that this is not possible any more. The new wizard will allow you to only change the HTML email, text only emails are actually no longer used as mobile devices are becoming more common and all can open HTML emails without issues."

    So thanks anyway.
