Before upgrading (from Rincewind) to the latest release (Weathermax), my email notifications looked like this:

:?: ** Question:**\\
How do I abbreviate "Synchronet"?
- With**out** an 'h'. :-) Seriously, the full name is "Synchronet BBS Software", so we prefer to usually abbreviate that to either 'SBBS' or just 'Sync'. Since 'Sync' is pronounced with one syllable and 'SBBS' is four, sometimes that's a reason to prefer 'Sync' to 'SBBS'. 'Synch' looks like 'sinch', so that abbreviation should be avoided.

Note: This isn't actually a frequently asked question, but it should be.

After upgrading to Weathermax, Courier Mail Server didn't like its HTML-encoded emails and converted the notifications to this:
This is the Courier Mail Server 0.60 on server
I received the following message for delivery to your address. This message
contains several internal formatting errors. This is often caused by
viruses that attempt to infect remote systems. Instead of blocking
this message, I converted it to a safe, text-only attachment that can be
safely read with a text editor.
This sometimes also happens when the sender's mail software has a bug
that creates improperly-formatted messages. Although these kinds of
formatting errors may often be ignored by other mail servers, this
server detects and intercepts improperly-coded messages in order to
prevent viruses from taking advantage of bugs in E-mail programs:
This message contains invalid MIME boundary delimiter headers.
See 'IMPLEMENTORS NOTE' in section 5.1.1 of
<URL:ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/rfc2046.txt> for more information.
After disabling HTML email encoding, I get notifications emails that look like this:
