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

 a message.  Message-ids are immune to archive restructuring.]

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-Transfer-Encoding: base64
      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.
