really, not enough to go on.  according this below, it was NOT quarantined.
this is worrysome though:

0.6 HTML_MIME_NO_HTML_TAG  HTML-only message, but there is no HTML tag

its almost like the email is trashed, that amavisd isn't seeing the 
whole email.

why not post the whole message (get it out of quarantine), post it to 
pastebin.con and send the url here.
