Thank you

that's caused by the email client, not the email itself

Wow Gmail's doing that? Must be an update on Gmail's part because it didn't happen in my previous Elkarte forums.

I did some quick testing on this and here is what I'm seeing with registration emails sent to:

Looking at the email on the native site (not an email client)

All of the above email source have both the plain text and base64 encoded versions which is what the forum sends.

Looking at the emails with a client, in this case the Windows 10 Mail app

So it seems when the email client requests the email from Gmail, and Gmail converts it to QP encoding, something goes "wrong".  As to why its a dunno at this point, I hope Sundar gives you some insite.
