nope, that's an issue with the mail, I'm having same problem. And yes, I've 
forbidden HTML display on my mail client (like everybody concerned about 
security is supposed to do). Still it displays HTML formatting tags in the 
text/plain part here

Generally sending HTML for mail is a poor idea, even multipart/alternative. 
But this particular mail is somehow messed up in a special way I don't see 
with other multipart/alternative.

Marcin Mielniczuk's client probably is set up to show the *HTML*-part, so the 
mess in text/plain part doesn't show up for him?
