Automatically, it can't be done yet. However if you are willing to do a
little reading on procmail it is trivial to have it divert your mail to
another mailbox in a more appropriate location. Check out 'man procmail'

Where exactly is balsa not recognizing these mime types? When you create a
message, or when you're reading them? The mime types for attachments when
reading messages are set by the sending mail client. For creating messages,
I can't see how we could have a problem, as we use the gnome mime routines.
I forgot to test this problem last night, I'll try to remember today and
take a look.
