I [sadly] very frequently get HTML-only e-mail.  In evolution these are

that FF opens the document thinking it is a "video/mpeg Object".

Is there a setting that is wrong, or one I can change, to have the
attachments displayed.

The boundry in the message source typically looks like:

Content-Type: text/html; charset="us-ascii"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit
Content-Disposition: inline

The problem is almost certainly with whoever is sending these mails.
"attachment.dat" looks like an Outlook-ism. It's possible that these
don't contain well-formed HTML with the proper headers, which confuses
the Evo HTML module.
