You can check this if you do not wish for the email recipient to see the form submission's data in the email.

Send email as plain text?

You can check this if you want to remove all of the HTML from the email, this means the email will have no custom styling and the recipient will only see the plain text.

If "Send email as plain text?" is unselected, several additional options for HTML editing are displayed.

If sending as HTML, there is the option to preview the HTML that is sent in the editor. Additionally an HTML template can be selected to provide a standard formatted email to contain the editable HTML content.

The list of available templates can be controlled by specifying the folder for these template files in YAML config.
