Reading notifications on github.com is greatly improved thanks to the numerous
enhancements shipped out earlier today. We’re excited to also announce a
brand new email backend with support for rich formatting (HTML), smart mail
headers, and shared read state tracking.
Issue, Pull Request, and all comment-related email notifications are now
delivered with both HTML and plain text parts. Markdown
formatting such as image embeds, links, lists, code blocks, bold, emphasis, and
blockquotes are supported. GitHub enhancements like
Emoji, @mentions, and
all work too.
We’ve tested under most popular desktop, web, mobile, and terminal based mail
readers. Here’s a taste of what you might see in Gmail:
See your mail client’s configuration or settings area if you prefer plain text
email. Most clients support disabling HTML content, either globally or for
Notification emails now make better use of the To, Cc, and Bcc
headers to signal message importance. Instead of addressing notification email
To you, the Bcc and Cc fields are used. Bcc is used unless
you’re participating in the message, in which case Cc is used instead. This
can be used to enable advanced mail client filters and interface behaviors.
Examples of mail client features that take advantage of these changes:
All email is now delivered with the From address: email@example.com.
Notifications that are read as HTML email are automatically marked as read in the
github.com notifications interface. An
invisible image is embedded in each mail message to enable this.
You must allow viewing images in mail from firstname.lastname@example.org in order
for this feature to work. Most mail readers allow images by default, but some
require confirmation before images are displayed.
