Thanks Jürgen. That's it. Here is the mail you sent me. It shows up correctly.

That is another reason for RESTful mail over TLS. Essentially any system where you allow an intermediary to handle your content, is an opportunity for that intermediary to alter it. And they will always find good reasons to alter it a bit ( copyright ) then more, then more...
