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
printing or uudecoding, etc.  When I moved to exmh I reworked
some of that, and rewrote some of it in a Tcl add-on.

I do need to completely rototill my nmh configuration to remove
everything that seems at all specific to the 1990s.  Heck, I
probably have some things from the 1980s in there.  Anyone use
MH-3 besides me?  Of course, I'd barely out of my teen years
then.   ;-)
