> so we can customize and save the template right?
yes, in the "body" field of the plugn, but first you must make it work :-)
> Is this template will used for all the notification mail? Like question asked and answered etc.
yes

ps
of course, I'm not talking of the Admin-->Mailing function, but of the "Email formatting" plugin

Mail texts are stored in qa-include/qa-lang-emails.php. They should support HTML in them which would be enough to make something more appealing.

Of course, you should edit the qa-lang-emails.php for your language file, if any. Or if you are using the default language then you can create the file qa-lang/custom/qa-lang-emails.php by copying the one in qa-include and customize it your own.

Yes, it should. However, bear in mind you need to escape the quotes inside the quotes. For example, instead of:
style="background-color:red">

You should use this:
style=\"background-color:red\">

But it doesn't works for me
My code is below


        'q_answered_body' => "<html><body  style='background-color:#FFE6FF'><table width=\"765\" border=\"0\" align=\"center\" cellpadding=\"0\" cellspacing=\"0\" style=\"border: 1px solid #B5EBDB\"><tr>
        <td background=\"http://reasonablespread.com/spreadresource/template/email/43/images/BusinessBasic_03.jpg\">&nbsp;</td>
        </tr><tr style=\"background-color:#FCC\"><td style=\"background-color:#FFC\">
       
        Your question on ^site_title has been answered by ^a_handle:\n\n^open^a_content^close\n\nYour question was:\n\n^open^q_title^close\n\nIf you like this answer, you may select it as the best:\n\n^url\n\nThank you,\n\n^site_title
       
        </td></tr></table></body></html>",
        'q_answered_subject' => 'Your ^site_title question was answered',

in qa-include/custom/qa-lang-emails.php

A few comments.

1. "it doesn't works for me" is like going to the doctor and say "I'm not feeling well, what should I take?" :)

2. You have syntactical errors in your pasted code, eg: style='background-color:#FFE6FF'

3. You should test your HTML code in a browser first. Create a file in your desktop, put the content in it, check it looks good. Then try to add it to the email string. Each email server processes HTML files differently. I've seen some that expect you to add "<html><body>" while others don't. There is a lot of trial and error here. But that is absolutely unrelated to Q2A.

It may be over spec for you. But, "Notification Pro" has its feature (Conversion to multipart email + Customizable email template). The default template is the template of popular mailchimp. If you have HTML and CSS knowledge, you are free to customize HTML email.
 
Reference:
 
 
Excerpt of the user's manual:
 
File extension
  *.txt: Template for plain text part
  *.html: Template for HTML text part
  *.css: Style for HTML text part
 
File explanation of main part
  main.html: Template of basic part applied to all emails
  style.css: Style applied to all emails
 
Conversion rule of main part
  [title]: Converted to “mail title”
  [style]: Converted to contents in “style.css”
  [site_url]: Converted to “site URL”
  [site_title]: Converted to “site title”
  [headerContent]: Converted to “images/eyecatch_600px.png”
    This is commented with initial state.
  [body]: Converted to email content
  [unsubscribe]: Converted to “unsubscribe link”
    This is displayed only in the case of email sent by NP.
