So if you tried that with nmh-attachment ... that might not have
done what you wanted.  _If_ the nmh-attachment code can't find a
matching extension in mhn.defaults (the default one doesn't have
anything that matches .exe), it looks through the file to be attached;
if there is nothing with the high bit set, it defaults to text/plain,
otherwise application/octet-stream.  So if your "fake" exe file was
really a shar file, it probably was sent as text/plain.
