This sounds like a thunderbird bug -- not properly displaying multi-part
messages.

The difference between org-mime-htmlize and latex-it is that the former
converts each formulas to its own png image, while the later converts
the entire message to one large pdf file which is then attached as a
single image.

The ability to convert the entire message to one monolithic image
(through latex and pdf) could certainly be added as an export option
(patches welcome), but I would not want this behavior to be the default,
as sending messages as large images is not (to my mind at least) a
desirable option.
