Default Easy fix for sending HTML newsletters but other in plain txt

> Can we send html newsletter in HTML and all other email
> notifications in plain text?

Here is the fix from x-cart support:

Please look at the "General settings" page. If the option 'Use internal PHP mailer for sending newsletters.' is turned OFF, you can try the following modification:

Edit the 'admin/spam.sh' file and replace the line

Code:
(echo "To: $target"; echo "From: $mail_from"; echo "Subject: $mail_subj"; echo; cat $mail_body) | $sendmail_prog $target

with

Code:
(echo "To: $target"; echo "From: $mail_from"; echo "Content-type: text/html"; echo "Subject: $mail_subj"; echo; cat $mail_body) | $sendmail_prog $target

Otherwise, you should modify the 'func_send_simple_mail' function in the 'include/func.php' file. Please rplace the lines

Code:
if ($config["Email"]["html_mail"] == "Y") $headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset: ".$charset.$lend; else $headers .= "Content-Type: text/plain; charset: ".$charset.$lend;

with

Code:
if ($config["Email"]["html_mail"] == "Y" || true) $headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset: ".$charset.$lend; else $headers .= "Content-Type: text/plain; charset: ".$charset.$lend;

-----------
Modifying 'admin/spam.sh' works fine for me.
This way you do not have to put
in all email templates
just to send html newsletter.

Enjoy,

Well, I don't see the point of having the "if" statement, as it will always be true as written. So you can probably simplify it to
Code:
$headers .= "Content-Type: text/html; charset: ".$charset.$lend;
and forget the if structure.

This is odd...

I was able to send the newsletter last month no problems with the above mods.


This month I go to send a newsletter and NOTHING is being sent for newsletters. If I remove the mod then the newsletter is sent but in text only. Is there a configuration to sendmail that has possibly changed on my server? Is there a way to check any of this?


I have 3.4.4. Internal php mailer and html mail are NOT checked.

Oh man just when you think somethign is working!@!!!

NOTE: I am able to send an html newsletter if I turn on php mailer and html mail settings. However this screws up the formatting for the standard non-html emails (order confirmations, etc..). I can turn on the settings, send the newsletter, then turn them back off but shouldnt the above mod to spam.sh work?


thanks
nick
