You are sending in both plain text and HTML, the latter being discouraged 
here. I see you're using Thunderbird, you can easily set that up to send 
plain text only. If you need to send HTML mail for some reason, I think you 
can set up to sent plain text on a recipient-by-recipient basis.

Just thought I'd point that out before someone else did so in a less polite 

Among other problems, HTML can cause trouble for digests and archivers, and 
sending the entire mail twice (html and text) is a waste of bandwidth.
