[MlMt] Lines not wrapped in viewer

Hi Henry,

Thanks for trying to be helpful. In this case, the messages are HTML. 
Actually, they are multipart/alternative with a text/HTML and a 
text/plain body part. If I switch the MM viewer preferences to plain 
text, I can see the message.

Mailmate's "View ->HTML source" shows what appears to be a 
digested/interpreted version of the raw message. The bug may be in an 
HTML viewer or pre-processor that MM uses.
