No, it's simple really. Pipermail stores all attachments in as .bin files. I believe this is to prevent any
possible server hacks by emailing attachments that could get executed locally by the server.
This was possible in hypermail by emailing a .cgi or a .php file. When you click that link the file would be executed.
I worked around it by disabling those extensions in the directories where hypermail is.
When you click the link, apache sees .bin, which will always return a mime type of application/octet-stream.
The only way to work around that is for pipermail to use a cgi program which would send the correct mime type when you download a file.
