It is a good idea to have some content in text even though the main message is in HTML 
- for those who have
text-only email clients! However not all clients handle the one-or-the-other scenario. 
So your 'problem' may be
with the particular client, or may be with the MIME encoding.

Recommend a visit to http://ww.phpguru.org/ and adapt/upgrade to the MIME and SMTP 
classes there (download
includes a set of examples - one sounds just like your construction). Have no 
complaints with my
service/combined HTML and simple-text messages, built on these classes!
