IIRC this was a measure put in place by infrastructure after numerous
complaints about viruses being mailed to lists by outlook. ask on
infrastructure for a definitive answer.

inline short text after the email body eg.
http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/james-server-dev/200708.mbox/%3cf470f68e0708011402w31f2f386if011d01d4d105125@mail.gmail.com%3e

longer text is better in JIRA

eg http://www.apache.org/dev/contrib-email-tips.html
