MIMEDefang automatically converts a single-part into a multi-part
entity before processing it.  That's so things like action_add_part,
etc.  work easily.  MIMEDefang converts the message back to a
single-part message at the end if such conversion is possible without
losing information.

If you really need the original MIME part of the top (outer) header, you'll
need to open the file ./HEADERS for reading and parse out the Content-Type:
header yourself, unfortunately.
