I have it set to automatically view as text already - I did notice though that
in squirrelmail, there does appear to be an attachment marked as text/html.

I don't believe the email is blank with just an attachment as even view
source, which displays the raw source on other messages with attachments does
not display anything.

I've tried all the different options for viewing attachments, from icons,
smart, in-line, hide and still the same result

Appreciate the thoughts - I really believe this is a kmail issue and for some
reason it is getting messed up on this single message.
When I initially click on the message in the message list, the preview pain is
completely blank - no header information. Only once I open the message do I
get the header info, but no body. If I click on another message and then back
to the problem message, the header info magically appears in the preview
window (still no body though).
