No, I don't always want MIME headers. I'm old-fashioned and don't need
a kilobyte where 10 bytes will suffice. I like nmh because text-plain is
good enough for most of what I do.
If you have a plain message, the only thing that gets changed is the following
headers get added:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
I don't consider this a huge problem; what, exactly, is your beef with this?
This is why I suggested having some optional arguments on the attach header
and attach command. And why I suggested a -check option to verify that
everything is OK before send. Nobody complains about whom -check!
It's not clear to me what -check would be checking (also, it seems today
that whom -check is not so useful; I just gave it a bogus address and our
SMTP server said it was fine).
