hmm, with 2008072500 (which admittedly isn't 3.0a2RC) I don't see a problem at either end.

what do you see with "view source".
And does it also not look correct when saved as a draft?

The message does not display correctly when saved as a draft. The message
source does contain the HTML, but it doesn't render correctly. The attachment
shows how the HTML formatted displays when it's received in Thunderbird. Here's
the messages source for the mail:

Copy of HTML 

Copy of an HTML email that does not properly display using Thunderbird/3.0a2 (X11; 2008072418).

email looks looks perfect in windows version 3.0a2 (2008072418) so compose isn't at fault.

- I can't comment on linux -

To Mike Badger(bug opener):

What is your choice of option in View/"Message Body As"?

Mail source says mail is proper HTML mail. So bug summary by you is apparently incorrect. And, if you chose View/"Message Body As"/"Plain Text", your "it doesn't render correctly" is incorrect too.
If your choice is "Plain Text", close as INVALID, please.
