I am experiencing a bizarre problem at present with a few emails.  Sometimes
the ContentType of the TIDText message part is returned correctly and other
times, it is returned as the ContentType of the whole message.

I am talking about the same message in each case.  So if I download it once,
the ContentType of the TIDText message part may be returned as
multipart/alternative for example, but if I download the same message again,
the ContentType of the TIDText message part is returned as text/html.

This seems to be completely illogical and therefore impossible, but the fact
is that it is happening - I spent quite a while yesterday afternoon playing
with two particular messages and it happened time and time again.
