                // we want line breaks in text documents
                if (string.IsNullOrEmpty(plain.Text)) {

                DisplayView(plain.Text.Replace(Environment.NewLine, "<br />"));


can you give me a email to send this email to you?

Unfortunately, I don't have time to administrate this project anymore.

You will need to step through the code manually and check, why the error occurs.

i debug step by step ,no view because the email content type is "MultipartMixed",but i don't know how to fix it.

Multipart/mixed is merely an indication that the content in the node is made up of nodes of different types, such as "text+attachment".
A View can never be multipart/mixed a view must be of type text/html, text/plain or some other kind of terminal node.
Can u view the mail in a regular email client, such as Thunderbird or Outlook ?
