    Sorry I was trying to search first for an answer, which was just what format or structure of the email is best for a service to then take the output and read into database.  Ie. the emails will go to an access database, does the HTML format email have xml tages on fields or is the text format better, just whats the best way to do.  Thanks, Brent

    Email Text Format is possible. It's pretty easy, here's how:

    1. Click Setup & Embed

    2. Click Email Alerts

    3. Open Notification and then click "Switch to Text Mode" button in the Compose Email Window.
