Not to mention that you originally sent the mail in
multipart/alternative format containing a text/html part.

text/html e-mail has been recently patented by Micro$oft, and is
therefore illegal to send without:

 - using Micro$oft software, such as Outleak or Outleak Express

 - using software licensed to author mails in text/html format (Ximian
   have *not* bought such a licence.)

 - paying your own license fee to Micro$oft for use of their
   intellectual property

Being generally anti-patent, we won't report this violation, however
it'd probably be wise to make sure any further e-mails are sent in the
patent-free "text/plain" format.
