Yes that is the settings I have

Hmm, that one is unchecked, so I will try that. Just checked that, but
the email still had rendering problems. I did press 'apply'.

Okay thanks. I do get some emails (e.g. Paypal) and it seems properly
'constructed'. There are text and html parts and the email header specs
state it being multipart,etc. There are no problems reading those
types. The email headers on this email are:

Content-type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

and the email body commences with html tags. So there is no real 'plain

As this is a html only email, that option

[ ] Render HTML-only messages with plugin if possible

can I use a plugin like either "Dillo HTML Viewer" or "Fancy" ?  Will
that affect other html/text emails ? I guess it shouldn't, as the
inference is "HTML-only messages"
