You appear to be correct with the specific message that I have in my email right now.  There is only an HTML portion to the email.  I understand that it is not really RoundCube's fault that the email is not multi-part, but shouldn't RC try to display the email instead of putting up a blank page with no way to view the message at all?  If you assumed HTML at that point and at least printed the contents to the preview pane at least you would be able to see some usable information from the email.  Maybe the issue is more complex than that, but some portion of the message would be better than none to me.

I guess the only way around this is to view these messages in another mail client, right?

Thanks for the information.
