Any documentation of what information is provided for each notification typeID? Also is there anything saying exactly how each type of notification looks ingame, so that you can recreate it exactly from the api data?

Sorry, but that wasn't my question. I'm talking specifically about /char/NotificationTexts.xml.aspx.

It's supposed to give the information about (in the case of "Alliance war declared" for example) which alliance declared war on who. But since every notification typeID is different the information available for each call to NotificationTexts will be different, and I can't find any documentation about it.

Also, even if it says that typeID 10 is "Bill issued to corporation or alliance" it's not documented anywhere that the actual mail would read:
"This is an automatic message. A bill of X ISK, due owed by ALLIANCE to CONCORD was issued This bill is for the maintenance of ALLIANCE."

For any mail app it would be nice to have it as close to ingame as possible.

What you are looking for is inside the NotificationTexts call for the related notificationID.
You just have to parse the ID's returned in the call and create your own descriptive text.

Yeah :/...
Problem is that I'll never have access to notificationIDs of all different types (they'll also have to be recent since NotificationTexts.xml.aspx require a prior call to Notifications.xml.aspx).
Which means there is no way I'll be able to test my way to this information...
