And just exactly what is not "proper" about

   <u><a href="http://www.bawt.org/">www.bawt.org&nbsp;</a></u>

However, that's really beside the point. As I noted in the OP, that
HTML was generated by "Outspring Mail" which is a commercial 3rd party
Mac OS X MUA. I doubt the sender had much to do with the exact
generated HTML, and certainly the recipient had nothing to do with it,
but it's the recipient that sees

  MailScanner has detected a possible fraud attempt from
  "www.bawt.org" claiming to be www.bawt.org 

in the received message.
