When using Transaction Configuration-Notification Option-Delivery Method = Inline-HTML Form
Approval email returned from iPhone does not include a subject line. The message goes back to the email repository with a blank subject line and will not get processed by the EOAWEMC application engine leading to transactions not getting approved.
