No. A comparison of the two messages I included in my previous mail
clearly shows that the only relevant difference is the presence of the
"name" attribute in the Anomy-zed MIME header for the HTML part.
** original headers **
** processed headers **
Content-Type: text/html; charset="iso-8859-1"; name="unnamed.html"

Blaming Outlook never hurts ;-). However, putting aside Outlook for a
moment, Anomy (or its documentation) is buggy for sure, since the manual
states that setting feat_force_name = 1 will "Force all parts (except
text/html parts) to have file names" and this is simply not true.
So I think Anomy should be fixed (alas, I don't know Perl well enough)
or the docs amended.
And again, does leaving some MIME parts unnamed pose any security
