It looks like mha-mhedit tries to run the www/w3m browser to dump a
text-only version of the HTML document, and then quote this as the
original.  Do you have the w3m port installed?  If not, there is probably
an option to tell mha-mhedit to use another browser with similar

FWIW, I use a similar trick to let mutt(1) handle HTML-only messages posted
by Outlook users.  In my ~/.mailcap file I have (all in one line):

    text/html ; /usr/local/bin/elinks \
                -dump -dump-charset greek '%s' ; copiousoutput

Maybe mha-mhedit can use a similar trick?
