Historically, any HTML generated by any MS program has been terrible,
what with proprietary attributes and tag sequences that violate nesting
rules (such as <p><ul>....</p></ul> when character formatting regions
should be entirely within a paragraph, e.g. <p><ul>....</ul></p>).

Snipping the HTML part out of one of his messages and running it through
HTML-tidy would be a worth-while exercise. So would fixing errors found
by HTML-tidy in situ in the HTML part of the message and running the
corrected message through SA to see how that affects the score.
