            Bug ID: 3004
           Summary: claws picks wrong mime type for attachments
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: Claws Mail
           Version: 3.9.2
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: Other
          Assignee: users at lists.claws-mail.org
          Reporter: pierre-bugzilla at ossman.eu

When I attach a file in claws and there are multiple possible mime types for
it, Claws picks the wrong one (compared to other applications, and the sensible
choice, so I assume there's at least a de facto ordering system in place).

As an example, Fedora has this in their mime type database:

$ grep png /usr/share/mime/globs

Everything else picks image/png, but Claws picks image/x-apple-ios-png. And
that presents some problems for the recipient to look at the image without
first storing it to disk.
