Somehow you sent HTML only, and that renders oddly in Thunderbird.

Have you considered GhostScript?  That used to be my viewer of choice 
for Postscript long ago.  I think TeXShop may be a wrapper.

My box has Photoshop as the default viewer for .eps and TeXShop for .ps. 
  I almost never use Photoshop: it comes as part of Adobe's 
Photographers Bundle.
