I can confirm that this works ok (rechecked my test cases). I still
think that doing this on send is a little bit of a hack, but in
practice it's a pragmatic solution that gets the job done (and
the change is small enough, so it's unlikely to introduce obscure

I hope you'll come to a positive conclusion on the html auto-view option
(checking for "multipart(alternative" like suggested), I will disable
the feature again at my end and stop tracking the issue, since I prefer
to see the plain text alternative by default - plus, sender, subject and
other headers are not shown in the html version (unless activated as an
extra panel, which for plain text duplicates this information and has
other limitations that make it not that useful). Extending the fancy
plugin to provide this kind of information in the rendered output would
be cool, but I don't think I have enough motivation to push for that :)
