I checked, and my MUA (Outlook97) gives a header of:

Content-Type: text/html; name="filename.html" Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

for an HTML attachment. This was improperly brought inline.

I also tried using the "-v" option to see exactly what combination of settings the program is getting. "inlinehtml" should be in that list if it's handled like other settings, shouldn't it? But it's not.

When I call the program with "hypermail -c .hmrc -v" the report has a number of duplicate callouts for things (and still no "inlinehtml" showing up), like:

inline_types: image/gif image/jpeg
inline_types: image/gif
inline_types: image/jpeg

prefered_types: text/plain
prefered_types: text/html
ignore_types: text/x-vcard application/x-msdownload
ignore_types: text/x-vcard
ignore_types: application/x-msdownload

show_headers: To
show_headers: To

Something doesn't seem consistent in the configuration options handling.
