Hypermail stores the attachment with the same extension that was used in the mail. Hypermail also displays the content-type to aid the user to know what kind of data the attachment consists of.

The rest is up to you and the user who sent the attachment.

Convert the file, save it locally, whatever. Hypermail really can't know what kind of data that is, nor can anyone on this mailing list. Unless someone knows about that kind of data that is usually stored in files with 001 extensions...

You know, extensions are only hints, they're not set in stone.
