I am experiencing a strange one. Emails have started going out with HTML tags in text format. Example below(That is the body of the email sent for the rota:

Dear Gavin Urquhart,
<p>Dear Gavin Urquhart,</p>Better late than never, I hope....<h4>Rota for Sunday AM Service at Main Venue on 8th January 2018 at 10:30:00</h4><table><thead><tr><th>Job</th><th>Who</th></tr></thead><tbody><tr><td>Sermon</td><td>Gavin Urquhart</td></tr><tr><td>Duty Leader</td><td>Gavin Urquhart</td></tr><tr><td>Worship Leader</td><td>Gavin Urquhart</td></tr><tr><td>Keyboard</td><td>Gavin Urquhart</td></tr><tr><td>Welcomer</td><td>Gavin Urquhart</td></tr><tr><td>PA</td><td>Gavin Urquhart</td></tr><tr><td>Coffee</td><td>Gavin Urquhart</td></tr></table>

My mail sender is Mailbank and it sends test messages fine. Even the Churchadmin Debug email sends with the tags.
Subject: Church Admin Test Email

<p>Test email from the church admin plugin</p>

That's strange! It works fine for us...
Have you/hosting company made any changes to your server? The plugin sets the mail type to html for instant send and queued email so it should work.
Have a look at the message source in your email program and see what is in the header section - it should have something like
Content-Type: multipart/alternative; or Content-Type:text/html in it.
If not something has happened at the server level or Mailbank (no idea what that is by the way!)

If you are finding the plugin useful, please subscribe to the app - it's free for your congregation to use and only £9.99pm for a church subscription

Strangely this is now fine. It fixed it's self. For about 1 week all my emails were "broken". Then today, all good.
