Thanks for looking at this.

I don't think your suggestion is correct. What I am trying to do is get
the format= and delsp= parameters from only the first text/plain part
in the message. Often, this will be the only part in which case it
doesn't matter.

Consider however a message with a format=flowed text/plain 'body' and a
subsequent attached text/plain part perhaps without format=flowed. We
want to remember the format parameter from the first 'body' part and
not override it from the second text/plain part.

I recognize that there can always be a pathological case where it might
be more appropriate to get the parameters from a subsequent part, but
I think in general, the first text/plain part is the safest.
