  • Allow HTML in Emails  = Enables HTML support in emails. We recommend using plain text (non HTML) email as it has better email delivery rate.

Troubleshooting

Q1 My organization uses GSuite for its emails. Let’s say our domain is xyz.org. If the user’s email address is john@xyz.org they don’t get the password reset email. If the user’s email address is something like john.smith@gmail.com, they DO receive the email.

Answer: The solution to the problem above was the server’s email routing. It was set to Local Mail Exchanger instead of Remote Mail Exchanger.

In the above admin custom email you can add any email tag you want in the body. This allows you to choose whether or not to include the  {password} tag.
