That would certainly explain it. I do have filtering on and I have
noticed that his hotmail arrives as html only -- no alternatives.
I had convert_html_to_plaintext enabled and thought that would take care
of things, but upon closer examination I realize I am filtering out the
text/html before that conversion can take place.
Looks like I need to add "text/html" to the pass_mime_types list.
Thanks very much!
