Not sure if this is the right place to post as it is not strictly GMT related. As the venerable mailing list has been shut down, I'm a bit bugged by the formatting of the emails sent by the Redmine software.

As I'm often on different mobile devices (limited screen real estate) I liked the formatting of the mailing list emails better. They sported the

  • author's email address (and therefore name) as sender vs the forums email address
  • more space for the subject of the message: [GMT-HELP] vs [GMT - gmt-user - msgXXX]
  • message body starts with authors content and doesn't repeat the subject of the message, annoying in the message preview.

Overall the old mails were easier/quicker to read at a glance on my mobile devices. Therefore I would appreciate a similar formatting of the "new" emails. I'm not familiar with the Redmine web application, so I have no clue about the possible inflictions and feasibility of my thoughts. Please see the attached screenshots (mailing list vs forum) for the differences.

All the best,
