1.2 Non-MIME

Gnus also understands some non-MIME attachments, such as postscript, uuencode, binhex, yenc, shar, forward, gnatsweb, pgp, diff. Each of these features can be disabled by add an item into mm-uu-configure-list. For example,

     (require 'mm-uu)
     (add-to-list 'mm-uu-configure-list '(pgp-signed . disabled))
postscript
PostScript file.
uu
Uuencoded file.
binhex
Binhex encoded file.
yenc
Yenc encoded file.
shar
Shar archive file.
forward
Non-MIME forwarded message.
gnatsweb
Gnatsweb attachment.
pgp-signed
PGP signed clear text.
pgp-encrypted
PGP encrypted clear text.
pgp-key
PGP public keys.
emacs-sources
Emacs source code. This item works only in the groups matching mm-uu-emacs-sources-regexp.
diff
Patches. This is intended for groups where diffs of committed files are automatically sent to. It only works in groups matching mm-uu-diff-groups-regexp.
verbatim-marks

Some inlined non-MIME attachments are displayed using the face mm-uu-extract. By default, no MIME button for these parts is displayed. You can force displaying a button using K b (gnus-summary-display-buttonized) or add text/x-verbatim to gnus-buttonized-mime-types, See MIME Commands.
