I'm having a similar problem with incorrectly sent attachments
turning into binXXXXX.bin files, as that mentioned in:

That is, Eudora seems to always send JPG, GIF and WAV files as
application/octet-stream. As an example:
Content-Type: application/octet-stream; name="Aerotech.wav"
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="Aerotech.wav"
I would guess Eudora can be configured to set the proper content-type.
I do not use Eudora, so I do not know how it would be done.
Rather than use the "usename" option of the external file filter,
I'd like to propose a new option of "useextension".
It is called "usenameext" and is part of v2.3. I sent an announcement
to the list last week about an alpha relese of v2.3 if you want to
test things out.
