 I've found another problem(?) with the same message that makes Hypermail not display any text (unless you alter the prefered_types or save_alts option): it is a multipart/alternative message, but it contains no type which Hypermail consider appropriate to display. The most reasonable alternative to display would be this nonstandard type: Content-Type: text/lmth;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

 My guess is that the preferedcontent function should be altered to give some small weight to the text/ and/or to the quoted-printable.  Does anyone have other ideas on how to handle this?
