 So that attached patch will stop ampersands from being converted in
 emails. In my testing, emails are then shown correctly on the front end,
 no encoding as mentioned above.

 But I know there's lots of other suggestions we check for on emails
 #21537, as well as the other tickets mentioned above dealing with
 ampersands being encoded in other places when we might not want them to.
 So not sure if this patch is even worth it, but decided to throw it out
