A better way to do it is to hook into the phpmailer_init hook, and only
do the necessary stuff if you need to.

    if (strpos($phpmailer->Body, 'my_unique_string')) {
        // Make your modifications

This helps you get around pretty much anything you don't like about
wp_mail(), while still being able to use the features it has.

Of course, failing that, simply use the PHPMailer class directly.
