It thinks the email you are indexing is markup not plain text.
One solution is to tell the parser you are indexing plain text.

    DefaultContents TXT*

The more useful solution would be to use a program to parse the mail
into a format that swish can use, such as extracting the subject, To,
>From and other headers, body, and possibly attachments into separate
sections and index as separate meta tags.
