  I found that Outlook sends text attachments as
"application/octet-stream",
but not as "text/plain".

  The Outlook attachment:
------_=_NextPart_001_01C7D91A.B3EC8530
Content-Type: application/octet-stream;
        name="etc.patch"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Description: etc.patch
Content-Disposition: attachment;
        filename="etc.patch"

  The Mozilla attachment:
--------------080001080007010006020507
Content-Type: text/plain;
 name="rwtest.patch"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Disposition: inline;
 filename="rwtest.patch"
