Notification emails sent as text from some forums but html from others

We're experiencing an issue where forums under one category seem to be sending the notification emails as text, but forums in another category send the notification emails as HTML. I've checked the configuration settings and the email setting is set to "HTML", so I can't understand why some forums are sending the notification emails (in this case New Topic notification) as text when others are sending the same exact notification email (New Topic notification) as html.

Is it possible that the format of the email sent could be dependent on the user's settings who posted the message? I did change all the users' profiles so to enable HTML (which I don't think has to do with email notifications but I tried anyways) and that didn't make any difference.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Keep in mind to clear the cache (of the jforum application) to have changes come to effect. Att times it may be necessary to restart the application too, depending on the change you did - like changing a value in the database directly.

If you dont clear the cache you will not see if the change worked ... as it will always use the cached (old) information and thus not change its beavhiour

Clearing the cache didn't help and I didn't make any changes directly in the database so I don't think an application restart is necessary. Any other ideas?

That very very odd, as JForum read the settings from SystemGlobals.properties / jforum-custom.conf only.
