Thunderbird version 1.0 (20041206) does not show signed messages sent by
Groupwise. I see an empty body, message source show complete content, but
security info does not show that message is signed.

I'm sure I've seen this exact same problem in another bug, but I can't locate 

The message is malformed, and it's Groupwise's fault.  The MIME structure of the 
message is:
  Top: multipart/signed; boundary="____LPHMXLZMXOMRLFKSEJCW____"
   Part 1: multipart/alternative; boundary="____LPHMXLZMXOMRLFKSEJCW____"
    Part 1.1: text/plain   (message body, plain text)
    Part 1.2: multipart/related; boundary="____WHPEPQYSAQXEHDGESJXG____"
     Part 1.2.1: text/html  (message body, HTML)
   Part 2: application/x-pkcs7-signature;

The basic problem is that the boundary for the Top's parts and for Part 1's 
parts is the same string.  I'm not sure what TB is doing in its handling that's 
causing nothing to be displayed, but if the message is properly formed, it 
displays just fine.

Sure message is broken, but I think it should be possible to recover in such case.
This is an automated message, with ID "auto-resolve01".
