I'm running Sylpheed 3.0.3 on severall Gentoo Linux systems, 32 and
Today I stumbled over an anoying problem on mime type handling.
I attached a word document, filenameending: 'doc' to an email and
wondered why sylpheed shows 'text/plain' as mime-type.
shows how mime-type exploration workd.
I have no mime.types in ~/.sylpheed-2.0, /etc/mime.types contains a
application/msword doc dot
Found no other mime-types files on the systems, attaching an xls, odt or
pdf works fine, means, the right mimetype is choosen.
According to the manual, sylpheed chooses 'application/octet-stream' if
it cannot be determined otherwise. Using that statement, sylpheeds
finds a mime-type 'text/plain' for 'doc', but where?
I looked all over ~ and also /etc for a hint of that mime-type
Or did I fail to notice something?
