discussed this a bit at:

I checked the RSS feed, and it looks like legit markdown. so maybe it's just the emails.

  • celery task [send_instant_notifications_about_activity_in_post](https:// send the email and calls
  • [askbot.models.format_instant_notification_email](https:// which in turn calls
  • [askbot.mail.send_mail](https:// which in turn calls
  • [askbot.utils.html.get_text_from_html](https:// which
  • uses BeautifulSoup to transform the html into text; that's the part that strips html tags and that you would want to edit if you wanted to give the markdown syntax instead.

If you were going that route I would suggest to have footer notes e.g.

This is some email content with [some text][1].
Please check [your answer][2] or visit [your profile][3].

... rather than inline links.
