I was looking into this for a customer today and it isn't Thunderbird's fault. Eudora destroys every message it touches.

Basically, what it does is take a perfectly usable multi-part message, discard the plain text portion, and rewrite the HTML portion so that no other client can tell that it's supposed to be HTML. Other clients, such as Thunderbird, assume the message is plain text because there's nothing to indicate otherwise.
