I don't think they can.
But that isn't how drag and dropped messages work when dragged
internally.  It sends them as uids+folders in 1.5.something+, so they
can't be anything but the right type.

They have to be encoded right at the sending end to start with if
they're ever to be recognised later. 

I thought that was what the bug was.

When I ran, a drag-n-dropped email was attached as 

When I upgraded to 1.5.91 and tried again, a drag-n-dropped email
was attached as message/rfc822.

Do you rely on the pattern of the name of the attachment to notice
that it is a uids+folder, instead of the mimetype?  If so, there 
is still a bug, because Evo 1.5.91 looks at that application/octet-
stream attachment, and will only let me Save As.
