QUESTION: What do we do if the Content-Transfer-Encoding is anything other than 

If it is 8bit, we take the :first number characters (not bytes), taking into account the "charset=" parameter of the Content-Type header, when presented. If it is base64 or quoted-printable, we convert it to 8bit and proceed as if it was 8bit. The same for binary, even if the result will be probably useless. (The useless results can happen using base64, too, but the possibility is smaller)

:type, :subtype, :contenttype

What is the obvious advantage of having them, compared to header :contains ? I mean, isn't 'header :contains "Content-Type" "text/"' as powerful, as 'header :type "Context-Type" "text"'? If this was discussed already on this list, could you tell me the starting date?

Със здраве,
