Could it have to do with the BodyFormat field? I believe it defaults to
HTML, and mono's implementation might be attaching a plaintext version of
the message with the HTML one as the main MIME body, using MIME type
'multipart/alternate' as suggusted by RFC 1521 et al.

Try setting it to .Text if you want a plaintext message. :-)
