The latest version is working much better by not attaching the jpg
file a second time.
However, it is still attaching the html file a second time so I see
duplicate html at
the bottom of the email.

Would it make sense to also not append any html files that have the match
on the "mailscanner.*signature" search when you don't attach the image file?
My thinking is that they (the inline html and the image) are a pair
and they should
both be added on the first email and both skipped on subsequent emails.
