Dear IT support,

Since we got the Redmine update, every time we get an update on a Redmine issue or a format, the automatic email looks very oddly formatted with some sot of markup tags.
See below an example.

Any idea on how to fix this?

<p>Thank you, Igor for the minutes and the discussions. We promised to write up some more comments (or "issues";) in the forum after internal discussion within LST and MST-N. Presently a total of 7 are discussed. I start with a commonly commented version of the ICD, attached to this answer.</p>

What is the problem exactly ?
In my email reader, the mail looks good.
Redmine send an email with a text version and a html version, this is a correct behaviour.
Cécile do you confirm the problem ?

The problem seems to occur on projects with CKeditor instead of the default standard textile editor.

Dirk found a very old ticket on this topic:

We have a problem, this plugin don't work correctly with redmine 4.2.
Some reported bugs are not corrected by the plugin developer.
The only viable solution for me is to disable it => problem all the projects with ckeditor activated will loose the formatting on all previously created objects.
24 projects use it.
May be it's possible to rollback conversion from html to textile (cf docs :

I need administrators opinion.
