SD E-Mail templates - "Answer above this line"-line disappeared


we've got some curiosity in our SD-Mail template configuration going on. In our prod-system, the "Answer above this line"-line disappeared (see attached screenshots). We've got exact the same content within the HTML-Box but there is no line in the preview windows of out prod-system (also not in the actual E-Mail).

Of cource I know that I can draw a line with dashes but I'd just like to know what is broken here!?

Hi Daniel,

That is strange to see, I agree.  I did some digging on this issue and found that there was a bug report for a very similar behavior.  Please see JSDSERVER-4945 for more details.   It looks like this behavior is expected to hide those top two lines, but only when the project's email channel is not currently enabled.

But that seems strange, because if you're seeing this in your production instance, but not the dev instance, I would expect your production instance to have that project's email channel enabled.

Ultimately that bug was closed as invalid, I think because if the channel is not enabled, it does not appear to have any actual effect in regards to what customers see. 

However I am worried to learn if your email channel is enabled here.   If it is and that is not the case here, then I'd like to learn more about what is different between these two environments.  

Hi Andrew,

actually, athough I was writing about our production system, it's not "productive" or "live" yet. We're still busy on setting it up. Thus, we haven't set up the mail channel yet and exactly that's what causes the missing line (I just counter-checked it).

Still a weired behavoir but now I now where it's coming from ;).

Thanks a lot for your "digging" !
