Your mail program produces HTML mail without an alternative text
section; that's a rather common practice among spammers, messes things
up for the mailing list archives, and makes your mail pretty much
unreadable in some (older) mail programs.  Here's the archived version
of this mail:

mail at all):


A quick look at the SeaMonkey sites shows that they have absolutely no
documentation whatsoever (except for a few random screenshots), so I
cannot help you configure the mail program to generate
multipart/alternative instead of text/html-only mail, but there's
probably some option for this.
