When a message is to be underlinedin Linux, the bottom half of the underline
between the surrounding underline characters is cut off.  

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Send yourself a message with one or more words _underlined_
2. Open in Linux and Windows
3. Compare underline on both versions.

In Windows, the underline is uniform thickness across the whole word/phrase. 
Linux, OTOH, loses the bottom half of the underline making it more difficult to see.

Expected Results:  
The Linux version should not half the underline.
