When I installed the v10 plugin from Adobe, I found that it was placed in 
the wrong directory (I think it was a mozilla directory rather than 
iceweasel).  There was no .so file nor a link to the player in /usr/lib/

You might try to locate libflashplayer.so, make sure it's got a recent 
(2009) date, and then move it to the iceweasel plugins directory or make 
a link there.

I tried a couple of alternatives available in Lenny (gnash and another 
I've forgotten) and they didn't work as universally as the one from Adobe.

BTW, you seem to be sending both plain text and HTML.  Please try to turn 
off HTML.
