Problems with MIME attachments

1998-11-30 06:01:37


I have a problem that I'm hoping somebody can help me with:

The Mhonarc (2.3.1) archive we are using is superb for showing MIME attachments 
of known formats, such as GIF etc when you place them inline. 

However we are getting attachments of a type TEXT/plain which aren't!  They are 
in fact Applix Word documents.

Mhonarc extracts the file as a text document but it would be nice if it would 
read the 'name=""' and 'x-unix-mode=0700' fields in the 
header line and store as a file.

[See below.]

This applies to a few other attachments types. I could use the 'usename' 
facility but this would cause problems with filenames that are the same.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.
