    Date tag on email notifications are now showing underscores

    Asked by glandoreghyc on March 13, 2016 at 03:39 AM

    I have a strange situation occurring now with Auto Responder emails sent as a result of a successfully completed form


    see the image below which is the last email sent without the corruption .


    This email was received on the 25th February and the subject line is fine

    Now take a look at the following email 

    Notice the underscore now being inserted in the section of the email subject line that is created by inserting Jotform code (which is  {DATE:l, jS \of F Y \a\t g:i A}) to pick up the date and time.

    This error has been consistent since this date and nothing has changed within the form construction.


    Why is this happening?
