Why are emails being sent out as text and not html with post-office as backend?

We've recently set up askbot to use python-django-post_office as the email backend at askfedora. I've noticed that the emails we're getting are now plain text, and not html as they used to be.

post-office seems to have two different variables for plain text mail "message", and html mail "html_message" (see the documentation on mail.send toward the end of this page) instead of using the "attach_alternative" system that's advised

Is this the issue?
