[ILUG] SA MISSING_MIME_HB_SEP rule

I have a problem where a customer sends out a newsletter which in at
least one case (apparently a friend of somebody who works in their
office :-( ) is not getting to its destination because it's rejected
due to SA rules - it gets 12.5 points, and they reject at 10.
There are various rules triggered, some of which I can do something
about, others not. But the one which puzzles me is:
The SA wiki explains this rule thus:
The format for e-mail requires a blank line between the headers and
the body of a message, the lack of one causes this rule to fire. This
rule is quite expensive to hit, so I guess it's one spam often fails.
However, looking at a sample of the newsletter email, I see this
(## lines are explanations by me for missing chunks)
## LOTS OF HEADER LINES ##
Message-ID: <auto-000004804511 at host6.makalumedia.com>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8
## LOTS OF TEXT BODY LINES ##
Content-Type: text/html; charset=UTF-8
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
## LOTS OF HTML BODY LINES ##
This appears to me to have the requisite blank line after each set of
headers - the mail headers, and each body part's headers.
Can anybody suggest what I'm missing? Should I maybe just toss in
ANOTHER blank line?
