Presumably, the message 'body' in this case is your msg_header. If you
remove the msg_header - i.e. make it empty, not just blank - it won't
be added and the 'body' will be the html part. See
for more on this.

I don't understand why unless filter_mime_types is not truly empty but
contains some whitespace.
