As the title says, I am looking for a way of sending plain text emails from SPD 2013 Workflow. I have found this similar post for 2010, but I am hoping there's a workaround for 2013 which I have not found yet.

I removed html tags by editing the email's body through the properties of the send email action, but the email is still being sent with the following html tags:

  • Starts with <html><head><base href='...' /></head><body>
  • Ends with </body></html>
  • <br> for line breaks

Is there any way to strip out these tags? Or should I go for a solution in Visual Studio?

You can change the workflow to a 2010 workflow that will remove the html scripting out of the email.

  • And how do you do that?
