Hm, I did not write the code that does this "weighting". This has been introduced afterwards. From what I can see, the logic is flawed and shows no understanding to how multipart/alternative mails are constructed and how the code uses this function.

(This is not meant to be criticism of the person who actually wrote this, I just think this is wrong.)
