Not surprising, since the payload of a multipart message is not the
textual contents of the message; it is a list of message objects each
of which is one of the sub-parts of the message.

It depends on what the incoming message looks like and what you want
the result to be. Perhaps the description of the walk() method (and
the other message methods) at
<http://docs.python.org/lib/module-email.Message.html> will help.
