 wp-mail.php is kind lacking in a bit of well, everything right now.

 I don't know when if there are any currently open tickets or any planned
 improvements, but I just wanted to chip in two cents here. I've had a bit
 of a nightmare experience after trying to use it with a client. It was a
 large headache, to say the least.

 For some reason, it's displaying odd characters between words and some odd
 symbols (notably a mixture of = signs and random numbers) are also showing
 up. There is no option to strip HTML formatting, so that displays in posts
 too. It doesn't make use of the pseudo-cron. You have to either manually
 load wp-mail.php, use a cron, or load a frame onto the front page. Posts
 sent through the system are instantly approved and there's no option to
 hold it in the moderation queue. There's pretty much no options at all.

 I really wouldn't mind working on this and submitting a patch if someone
 wanted me to. I was searching through trac and (I could be wrong) but this
 hasn't been touched since 2006 or earlier.
