I'm trying to understand the use of mailcap for MIME translation within a
mail client. I installed mail/metamail, which created a .mailcap file in
my home directory. That file appears to be a copy of the run-mailcap
script. But what does it do? It seems like it does nothing.
What I'm trying to do is get the mail client to open an image viewer when I
double-click on a jpeg attachment. The mail client is designed to source
the mailcap file from /etc/, /usr/local/etc/ and from ~/.mailcap.
What am I missing here? What's the best/proper way to do this?
