Haven't used thunderbird or gnome3. Don't know much about emails either.
But I recently started using mutt and hence noticed that the difference between
the 2 messages in your screen-shot is that The OP's mail(the one that looks weird)
contains 2 parts one plain text part and one html part whereas the reply
(which looks normal) has only a plain text part.
Maybe thunderbird has an option to use a particular font when rendering emails
that contain html?
