don't think mutt should say that there is an attachment.
I think we are on the same page Kyle. You understand where I'm coming from
with the Apple Mail messages. I have collaborators who send a lot of files:
pdfs, jpgs, whatever. They just toss them in the message window and they
get inlined just like the example I described early and you showed. It'd be
nice if they showed up or got counted somehow but I don't see how to make
mutt do it.
Of all the ideas discussed so far, I think the one of counting all the non
text/html attachments in the last part of the multipart makes the most
sense. Especially if the last part is supposed to be the preferred/richest
one according to the RFC.
