When it comes to managing emails, I can easily receive about 600 a day. This is probably far too many (although that’s a subject for another day). The challenge with receiving so many emails, especially so many system generated errors and warnings is that they can fail to stand out. Important information can be missed. A lack of formatting can also make it difficult to understand what the problem is, if any.
Here is an example of a boring system generated message.
To get around this, I always try to use some pretty HTML in my output just to help with the appearance and to make the message easier to read. I don’t go overboard, just a header tag, something like <h4> is usually enough (unless you want it really big) and of course I like to include my output in a table, usually with a splash of colour in the table header.
