Re: [Evolution] attachment.dat

The attachment name is definitely "attachment.dat". This seems to be the
case when Content-Type: text/html. 
On the other hand, when Content-Type: multipart/alternative there is an
attachment (containing the html portion) named "attachment.html", while
the text portion is viewable in the reading pane. Which is more or less
what I'd expect. In this case, as with the message which was
Content-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1", the HTML portion of the
message is readable when viewing source.

yes, that's doing it. It couldn't find the text/plain part, and hidden
your text/html part (the only part being in the mail) as an attachment.
By the way, the name should be attachment.html (not .dat), if I recall
correctly, and it should be expandable inline in the preview pane.

Alternatively, you can set the middle option, the "Prefer PLAIN".

Anyway, what you described sounds pretty same as
