Many things could affect that, but you have only mentioned Thunderbird.
I don't use Tbird, but I have also seen this occasionally. Was this a one-time
event, or is this "normal" now for your setup? What system was _she_ using?
She may have sent it using a different mail program, such as her ISP's webmail.
You'll get a better answer if you provide more info in your question. :-)
