Hypermail 2.0b3 is old. There are later versions at

However - latest version still treats text/plain attachments as a special case and inlines them - there's no way to disable this in the config file.

Simply removing text/plain as a special case doesn't work as well as it might as it then stores the message text as a separate file too. 'Correct' behaviour but not very friendly.

I guess it would be possible to add some logic so that the first text part is shown inline with subsequent ones as links (with this behaviour being controllable fromthe config file of course).
