I think that's it. I discovered  mutt's "e" key which lets me edit a message in
place, and after the Message-Id: header, I see this:

MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: TEXT/html; CHARSET=US-ASCII
<DIV id=wmMessageComp name="wmMessageComp"><BR><BR>
blue 2px solid">-------- Original Message --------<BR>Subject: RE:
and so on....

When mutt sees a message like this, it says:

[-- text/html is unsupported (use 'v' to view this part) --]

So I tried your suggestion and put:

auto_view text/html

in muttrc and that solved it beautifully! Thanks!
