When I use add_part I end up with the base64 encoded bodyhandle, see below.

During 'filter':

$bodypart = $entity->bodyhandle;

During 'filter_end':

(first bodypart is some html stuff)
$newmsg = MIME::Entity->build(
          Data => $htmlpart,
          Type => "text/html",
          Encoding => "-SUGGEST",
          Disposition => "inline");
