Include Avatar Images in Forum Post Notification Emails
I've noticed that Basecamp includes the avatar image of message posters, and I think that might be a nice feature for our own notification system. What do you think, and how hard would it be to set this up?
I guess this also raises some questions around the styling and format of notification messages -- do we use HTML or only plain-text images?

Digests are sent as HTML, so this wouldn't be that hard to implement on that end. The images will have to be externally linked back to our site, which might create some annoyances for people who read their email when not connected to the internet, or with external images disabled.
The question of HTML emails sitewide is a much bigger issue.
