Well they can set mm-inline-override-types to
"non-existent/type". Rather a kludge I agree.

I agree with this and do think we should block this by default. In
particular, gnus/mm stuff doesn't even check for the existence of unzip
before running it on zip attachments so on my machines which don't have
unzip I get a bodypart insertion error.

One alternative would be to add a variable
notmuch-mm-inline-override-types which would combine or replace
mm-inline-override-types for notmuch's use. A defcustom would be
clutter, but a variable would mean anyone with unusual requirements
could just setq it.

What does anyone think?

Best wishes
