That is because whatever you're using for email sent both HTML and plain text, 
but in complete violation of sanity, left the plain text version empty. Ben's 
mailer is showing him the plain text version, which is perfectly reasonable, 
and why he saw nothing.

Please adjust your mailer to send plain text only. It is all you need anyway, 
and renders more reliably for other people.
