Plain text and html text versions in universal email
I'm using universal email to send out a newsletter.
I'm sending using pearl mail using a 3rd party authenticated account, everything works perfectly except ...
I recently ran it through a spam score service and one of the results said ...
MIME_HTML_ONLY Message only has text/html MIME parts
You should also include a text version of your message (text/plain)
I have read through the forum and it says the plain text version is automatically added.
I've created a php page template, where the content is populated from a mysql database.
I populate the email using 2 separate db tables, table 1 for the article content and table 2 for the subscriber list.
I copy the source code below, and then in the WA wizard click the pencil icon and paste it into the wizard
(For simplicity, I've abbreviated the full html coding, but basically it's a html table structured, with db content)
... this then generated file stored in ../webassist/email/WAUE_filename.php
I think I need to include a different / additional meta content to output as both plain & html formats
Can you please advise what plain text elements need to be added to my output template. I'm happy to manually add them to my template, it's a case of know the correct format and where to place them.
