Are you sure?  This message had both a text/pain and a corresponding
text/html part.

Normally I use the version of nmh that I get my Linux distro; at the
moment this is Fedora 23 -> nmh-1.6-3.fc23.x86_64 ; this installs
/etc/nmh/mhn.defaults ; which entry would be needed?

All I can see is:

        -> grep -i html /etc/nmh/mhn.defaults
        mhshow-suffix-text/html: .html

Thanks for all your help!!
