I once had the same problem with SimpleMail. I think that text stationary that comes wit SimpleMail is not good enough at displaying big chunks of text. There are two workarounds:
First (which I'm using) is to put away the message to NewtWorks. It's much easier to read digests in Works due to it's scrolling capabilities.
Second is to install Paper stationary that comes with SimpleMail, it's much better at displaying big amounts of text, although scrolling with this stationary is not impressive (you can't use up/down arrows, only slider).
