Rob,

This doesn't make sense

1. None of your examples here are using have_selector !
2. Why is OrderMailer no longer creating a receipt
3. Why is @mailer being encoded

Is mailer.body the same in both versions, can you show this.

Have you tried using a debugger before the first have_tag line.

All best

Andrew :)
