Yes. In fact you should be able to specify even weirder formats as prefered in case you'd like that. A document could theoretically be written in Word and then sent as Word, HTML and plain text format. Setting hypermail to prefer Word would then make hypermail save the Word part as a separate file (and not show any of the other formats).

I hope that all kinds of functionality in hypermail that outputs inlined HTML will be using the HTML filter by Byron C. Darrah. Not that I have tried it yet, but it sure sounds promising!

I've also considered to allow some configurable option that saves plain/text attachments as files too, except the first such part.
