When an html formatted email contains certain css styles in html and body tags (`overflow:auto;` and `height:100%;overflow:auto;` respectively) the message view height becomes too small.
Same html content renders fine in Chrome, Firefox and Midori browsers.

Thanks for a bug report. I'm moving this to the Mailer component, as this is not a problem in the message Composer, but in the message preview. The main difference with the tested browsers might be that the evolution uses iframe-s with frame-flattening, which are supposed to get their height based on the actual content. It's most likely a WebKitGTK+ bug. I'll test it more and will eventually move it there.
So it is as I expected, it's an issue in the WebKitGTK+. I opened a bug there:
Please see it for any further updates.
