I am a new user of Rapid Contact Ex.
Everything is working as expected, thank you.
I have seen where the auto reply to the customer goes, and how I can format that.

Regarding the message that Rapid Contact Ex creates and sends to me, as the system admin:  How can I make the generated email look nicer? (Where do I put the formatting of the messages?)

Hello Richard and thank you for your post!

The easiest way to customize the email sent to the administrator from Rapid Contact Ex, is to create a template override. (See more on how to create template overrides )

Here is a list of files that you can override and what they do:
1. components/com_rapidcontactex/views/rpxform/tmpl/default_email_html_wrapper.php
This file contains the wrapping elements around the whole message. It also includes a reference to the email subject and header.

2. components/com_rapidcontactex/views/rpxform/tmpl/default_email_header.php
This file contains the email header, which is the "You received a message from" text we have included in Rapid Contact Ex.

3. components/com_rapidcontactex/views/rpxform/tmpl/default_email_field_value_pair.php
This file contains the wrapper around each field's name and value pair which appears inside the message. You can customize the layout and the colors here.

4. components/com_rapidcontactex/views/rpxform/tmpl/default_email_checkbox_group_header.php and default_email_checkbox_group_footer.php
These files are respectively the header and footer of the checkbox group field.

5. components/com_rapidcontactex/views/rpxform/tmpl/default_email_field_group_header.php and default_email_field_group_footer.php
These files are respectively the header and footer of the field group field.

Using these files, you can customize the look of your email as much as you wish!
We'd love to see what you'll create, if you'd like to share!

Now that I have HTML messages working properly, the replies look really good.

All I've changed is to increase line size to 2.4em.

You may close this record now.
