Thanks for your reply (again). I found a way to control the mime mappings in
(the mappings section in the ini file). Now it sends the rtf file as
but then MHonArc seems to have some problems with this type since it doesn't
seem to
be able to retreive the original file name. The HTML page shows a link 'RTF
pointing to a file rtf####.rtf (#### is a number).
The message contains the following:

Content-Type: application/rtf; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="d44-21.rtf"

Does this mean that the content type etc. is set wrong in this case or is it
some strange behavior of the m2h_external'filter.
