I've done some more testing and now the situation is a bit clearer. At work I have to deal with an Office365 mail server. Then, if I fw an html-only message, the webmail interface of the receiver shows the fw'd mail as an attachment and my email like this:

(whatever comment I had added to the message)

-------------------- Start of forwarded message --------------------
From: (sender)
To: (me)
Subject: (whatever)

This is of course confusing because the receiver sees an empty message and
might not expect an attachment.

I thought I could solve this by adding `disposition=inline` to the <#part ...>
line, but unfortunately this doesn't work either.

Any other ideas are more than welcome.

Any html-only message is displayed (fw'd?) as an attachment.
