    Have you read this section ‘Customize Email Template’ on this page:
    https://codex.buddypress.org/emails/

    Hey,

    I have the same problem that buddypress just sends plain text emails not HTML?!

    Any help is highly appreciated.
    Cheers

    Any plugin that redeclares wp_mail() will cause BuddyPress to send plain text emails.
    The Postman SMTP plugin redeclares the function in Postman/PostmanWpMailBinder.php.

    A solution might be to find another SMTP plugin, but it depends what exactly you are using the Postman plugin for.

    Thanks Paul for your quick reply 🙂

    That’s a valid point! I am using Easy WP SMTP right now! I need to deliver situation like subscription and welcome emails..

    To make clear, would you please advise which plugin is compatible with buddypress! I guess buddypress situation giving me some cool features such as user engagement. However, I wonder if it is integrated with the theme I’ve installed WPLMS since it delivers some emailing features related to courses status as well does WooCommerce.

    Thanks again for your support
    Cheers

    Hi guys,

    I found out that mandrillapp.com works as SMTP service with BuddyPress because of replacing all line feeds ("\n") by <br/> in the message body. The issue there is that mandrillapp.com will become an AddOn of MailChimp with day of 27th April this year.

    For this reason I searched for another SMTP service and tried SendGrid. Both SMTP services can use individual HTML templates, not from BuddyPress but you can style it within your account there. For now SendGrid cannot replace the line feeds as mandrillapp.com does but I contacted the support team of SendGrid and they will work on a solution for it. Hope to get the solution soon.

    Best,
    Thorsten

    Hi @abuyaman

    I found a HTML solution that works now with WP/BP.

    1. Use WP Better Emails
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-better-emails/

    2. Use SAR Friendly SMTP
    https://wordpress.org/plugins/sar-friendly-smtp/

    And if you don’t have a SMTP service, use SendGrid.com

    Tested and it works for like a charme.

    You can also integrate Gmail for sending Emails using the WP SMTP plugin : http://www.wpbeginner.com/plugins/how-to-send-email-in-wordpress-using-the-gmail-smtp-server/

    For the WPLMS theme, the developers are working on migrating their course related emails to Buddypress.

    I will continue using Mandrill due to our systems being tied with Mailchimp, and the tracking is amazing. How do we go about making the BP emails HTML with Mandrill?

    Hello Guys

    I have found solutions for html email text
    there is some changes in bp_core files :
    You can change content type given below path:
    \wp-content\plugins\buddypress\bp-core\bp-core-functions.php line number 2962

    put content_html text instead content_plaintext:
    content_plaintext should be send plain text email and content_html should be

    send html email:
    $email->get( ‘content_plaintext’, ‘replace-tokens’ )

    $email->get( ‘content_html’, ‘replace-tokens’ )

    I would like to give suggestions, if buddypress team should be given backend options like select content type (1)HTML email (2)Plain text
    because buddypress have not given any hook for changes content type text
