RE: Two mutt issues

Why, does Outlook 2003 block *all* attachments now? ;-)

I'd bet this one is a text/binary issue, but I've not looked into it.  My guess
would be that the text/binary logic that I added for saving is being bypassed
somehow during save-to-temp-then-viewing.

Maildir isn't directly supported on Cygwin unfortunately, and likely never will
be due to its violation of POSIX filename rules.  The error you're seeing is a
direct result of this.  That said, people have reported some success with
Maildirs by using Cygwin's new "Managed mounts" feature, q.v., and putting their
mailboxes on one.
