Package: metamail
Version: 2.5.73

Ubuntu 7.10 libc 2.6.1-1ubuntu10
Linux version 2.6.22-14-generic (buildd@terranova) (gcc version 4.1.3
20070929 (prerelease) (Ubuntu 4.1.2-16ubuntu2)) #1 SMP Tue Dec 18 08:02:57
UTC 2007

(Also metamail 2.5.71 on Ubuntu LTS)

metamail -w is supposed to write parts to files but acts exactly as
metamail <noswitch>
In a terminal

run metamail -w mailmessage

where mailmessage has mime parts such as pdf or html.
metamail will ask to launch evince or browser instead of
asking to write the part to a file.

The man page says that -w ignores mailcap, but this is not the case.

The metamail package has been recently removed[1] from unstable, and I am
