After receiving a message that is part of several replies, the sent message,
with new body added shows sent successful.  The recipient complains of "no
message".  Checking in the sent items, the message does in fact contain NO body.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using the attached sample message, attempt to forward, or reply to.
2. View the sent message source in Mozilla and on the recipient end.
3. Notice the body does not exist!

Actual Results:  
Blank message sent to recipient, all typed content lost and isn't even in the
"sent" message found in the sent folder.

Expected Results:  
Send the message with the added body content, including the original message thread.

Sample message

This file is a sample message that I can consistently reproduce the bug that
will blank the entire body of the message when a forward or reply with original
message is performed.

I filed this as "critical" because all of the typed content added to an email
displaying this bug is lost.  I personally spent 20 minutes typing a reply to
this message only to find it lost forever after I discovered this problem.
