I doubt that Gmail and Hotmail ever send non-compliant messages. It would cause problems to many people.

I just tried sending messages to my mail server and see the messages in the mailbox directly without retrieving them with my mail client. The messages come well-formed as expected. Just take a look below. I just omitted some received headers to make them short.

The Hotmail message is plain text because I am using Firefox to access Hotmail. Still it has the Content-Type header.

It seems the problem is not really with Hotmail or Gmail. I suspect that you are not viewing messages as you should or your mail server is doing something odd to your messages.

Hi Manuel,
If that is what you are getting , then I should restart my activity on finding how at all I am getting these kind of messages on my mail server.
I am acknowledging you for the effort taken , I will let you know
if I find anything at all. I guess , now I dont have to send you my fixes in mime_parser.php unless you want it.
