Package: metamail
Version: 2.7-45.3
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch

Some mail clients like to send attachments with content type
application/octet-stream, even if they obviously (e.g. from the
filename suffix) have a more specific type.  In that case, metamail
asks the user whether it should display the attachment as text, save
it, or skip it.  The following small patch adds as another option the
possibility to explicity give an other content type and process the
attachment accordingly.
