  I found that Outlook sends text attachments as
but not as "text/plain".

  The Outlook attachment:
Content-Type: application/octet-stream;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Content-Description: etc.patch
Content-Disposition: attachment;

  The Mozilla attachment:
Content-Type: text/plain;
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Disposition: inline;
