      Description

      There are two issues that make the emails from the forum less user friendly on android.

      1. The message is displayed in a table with badges on the left and the message on the right. Android lists these badges horizontally which means the message gets very squashed especially when the person responding has many badges. Can we remove this left hand column from the emails and just send the key information?

      2. The subject field of all messages from the moodle.org forum start with 'Moodle in English:' which I assume is the course title. On android mobile devices, this is as much of the title as can be displayed, meaning that you can't tell what the message is about without opening it. can we move the course title to the end of the email subject e.g.
      "Re: Totara code now available‏ (Moodle in English)"

      This will allow uses to more easily ignore conversations/debates that they are not interested in following.
