In general, what I would like for 1.6 is:

- Not to invoke the pager for each MIME part.
- Internal use of iconv to convert to the proper character set.
- Not attempt to display parts with a disposition of "attachment".

In my limited experience they do not, but if you really want to set the
disposition you can do it with a mhbuild directive; the man page has more
details, but you'd probably want to put something like:

#<text/plain {inline}

in your message.
