I'm not 100% sure, but if there's no name and filename options to 
Content-Type and Content-Disposition headers, some (not all) mail agents 
will not show that there's an attachment if the attachment is 
displayable (text/plain, text/html, images, and so on).

Also, I need to throw some ash on myself.  I've reread mimedefang-filter 
manpage.  You were right, if you set AddWarningsInline, than MIMEDefang 
was supposed to add warnings to the first text/plain and text/html 
parts, not generate separate MIME part (unless there is no text/plain 
and text/html parts).  Was there anything unusual in those emails that 
made MIMEDefang use inline attachments instead of mungling existing text 
and/or html parts?
