I know the text/html was a problem. I expect that non-text
attachments will be unviewable. But, I could forward to a
web email account, if I really needed to see them.
I used to invoke mhn via script. I didn't change much of
anything in my [n]mh configuration as nmh replaced MH. Back then
I'd moved from command line to Xmh, and I eventually moved to
exmh. With Xmh I'd written a launcher script to do things like
