[Xymon] xymon alert email

I recently moved one of my xymon servers from a CentOS 5 to CentOS 6.4 server. I have 1 alert configured to email me the details of any alert that is alerting longer than 30 minutes, and when it recovers. Before, on the CentOS 5 server, it would work as normal and the alert was in the body of the message. Now that it's on CentOS 6.4, it's having the alert in an attachment, and nothing in the body.

Searching for a solution seems to indicate it's something with how the body of the message is created by xymon and new line carriage returns. But I wasn't able to see any solution other than maybe writing an external script to modify the alert before sending with mail, or mailx. Does anyone have an easy way to fix this with a setting in xymon itself?
