The messages have to start out as HTML-formatted. You can't take
a plain-text message and then paste HTML into it and expect that to
work -- there's extra syntactic glue around the message content which
has to be provided by the MUA, and this is invisible to the message
As to exactly what's happening in your case, it's hard to say.
Maybe the faux HTML is being stripped and leaving no message that can
be distributed, who knows? With more details from you, we might be
able to help.
