Funny, that message works perfectly in KMail, Evolution & every
other mail client installed on this machine (Ubuntu Feisty on
a klunky old Celeron).

It's looking close to certain that you're not using a MIME-compliant
email client -- & MIME is not exactly a copywrong-protected secret
of the Redmond Conspiracy.

Visit http://shipit.ubuntu.com/ to ask nicely, & they'll snail-
mail you a free ISO which both operates as a LiveCD (so you
can try it) & installs a comprehensive suite of email clients
that I can demonstrate working with every LA list message
this month.

Cheers; Leon
