    Description

      I am considering here the received emails originating from a forum of a course requiring authentication.

      A. There are two problems with group images in emails:

      1. Group images are NOT displayed at all in received emails when the course require authentication.

      2. Group images are display horizontally and not vertically in a email (which can create a space problem when the user is a member of several groups). Note that the group images are shown vertically in the forum of a Moodle site.

      B. Images uploaded in a message are not displayed when the course require authentication (images will display only when the image URL is provided).

      Tested with the Clean and Essential themes.
