Description Andrew Whitworth 2007-08-31 21:30:38 UTC
Can we add a capability to parse wikitext in an outgoing email?On the [[Special:Emailuser]] page there could be checkboxes for "format as HTML" and "parse Wikitext". That way, we could pass links to pages on the wiki using bracket-notation in an email, and have them be proper URLs when the email is received.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-09-01 04:43:15 UTC
The specific case of URLs is the focus of bug 7846. On the whole, I'm not sure I like the idea of sending HTML email; I see no great benefit in it, and several possible problems.

Duping this up to bug 7846.
