Looking at the email source it clearly shows as being mimetype
"multipart" with both a plaintext and HTML part. I don't think you
can much criticise GMail for interpreting and attempting to render an
HTML email as HTML. The biggest culprit here IMHO was the sending
mail client that generated a broken text mode version of the email's
intended formatting by dropping the indentation (and if the HTML is
broken, generated broken HTML to boot as well.)
