Desktop/Laptop HTML Only
This generates an email containing the report encoded in HTML, and is suitable for display on most email viewers. This format is a space hog, but does feature hyperlinks, colors and neat formatting. Many mailers will display this format just like the web page, except that email reports don't offer automated links into the bulletin board. This snippet shows how the Firefox web browser renders it (your emailer may render it differently than this):
This generates an email containing the report in both plain-text and HTML formats (see Desktop/Laptop Text Only and Desktop/Laptop HTML Only above for snippets).

Mobile Device HTML Only
This generates an email containing the report in a compact HTML format. This format is intended for mobile devices (e.g. iPhone or Android), and features hyperlinks, colors and neat formatting. Most likely you will be interested in this format only if you have a mobile device. This snippet shows how the Firefox web browser renders it (your emailer may render it differently than this):
