Ok, guess we are in the same båt, so to speak.
FYI, the 6.0.1 upgrade did not fix this issue but their support promised us: "Support for the HTC Magic and onwards which use activesync software by HTC is only planned from ZCS 6.0.2."
... let's hope 6.0.1 is not too long-lived
While I'm waiting I've setup a second mail profile configured as IMAP (against the same zimbra acc) -- then I just have to remember changing outgoing profile when replying/sending mail. Not pretty, but works..
The bug report got resolved with "WORKSFORME"
Bug 38854 – Support for HTC Magic (Running Android OS with ActiveSync support)
Just tested it with the new Hero (Nordic) firmware and still not able to send email.
On HTC Hero, Activesync worked out of the box, but sending mails fails. pmx, I think you should file a new bug for this issue, since you seem to have the most details about this and according to you, this is not a firmware bug by HTC.
Submitted now : Bug 41145 – Support for HTC Hero (Running Android OS with ActiveSync support)

Thank you for filing the bug. I will add more details later on and vote for it. I got the same effect
Seems to be a bug in HTC's mail client. (or just "standard" MS stuff)
utf-8 doesn't seem to be a valid Content-Transfer-Encoding parameter according to the standard.
5. The Content-Transfer-Encoding Header Field
There is another unlucky typo:
You realise the space after the equal sign?Content-Type: text/plain;
But you are right, this bug report belongs to HTC not to Zimbra.
However I think it's better that Zimbra contacts HTC. Otherwise they will just say "it works with exchange".
Or make it work with buggy clients.
It really works with egg-changers? I do not have one handy to test.
