The message is separate from the .doc file and is explanatory in nature
relating to, say, a complex legal .doc file with annotations.

As you will see from my reply to Mark I am hopeful that removing header
and footer text has resolved the issue. The header was shown as the
message and the message as an attachment. So fingers crossed.

I also have Claws lockups but never found out why. Most unladylike as
even the Force Quit button is rendered nonop. PMail is way ahead of
Sylpheed or its more popular cousin Claws in terms of features. With a
floating window structure I would not say it resembled either. It is my
own favourite on Win for handling heavy mail loads, but then I am only
just looking at mutt and never have seen alpine! More like Mark's
Popcorn from a look at his screenshot.
