 What is happening is that Hypermail expects a multipart/alternative boundary at the start of the message body, and discards everything until it finds one.  This doesn't seem right. It should at least detect the start of the next message, and should probably display the confusing body as plain text. Does anyone know what rules other mail parsers use in this situation?

 It sure looks like the mail is being altered somewhere in the delivery process, but I don't know how to track it down to something more specific.
