On /auth/subscriptions/ their are choices for HTML, Plain Text, or Combined emails. Sending html-only mails can trigger spam warnings like this one from spamassassin:

2.3 MIME_HTML_ONLY         BODY: Message only has text/html MIME parts

There's no reason we need to offer HTML-only. All HTML mail clients can handle multipart (combined) mails. So I think we should consider all HTML-only preferences as "Combined". And on the preferences page, remove "HTML" and then rename "Combined" to "HTML" (or rich text / formatted / something better?)

    Fix on branch db/8191 To review:

    • docker-compose restart taskd (since it doesn't auto restart like the webapp does)
    • docker-compose logs --follow outmail to see email output
    • check that email goes out as either text only, or multipart text + html, depending on users' setting
    • if someone was on "HTML"-only before, they should now get multipart email and the UI will show as "HTML" for them.
