     3 == Background == 
     4Mulberry uses the old Internet Config system to determine MIME-types on outgoing as well as incoming attachments. The only way to modify these settings in Mac OS X is by using [http://mac.clauss-net.de/misfox/ MisFox] (or possibly, if you can get it to launch, Internet Explorer). Unfortunately, since Mac OS X 10.6 (''Snow Leopard''), file type/creator are no longer used by the operating system when determining how to launch an application. In its place Apple added Launch Services. Read more about that at [http://db.tidbits.com/article/10537 TidBITS] and [http://arstechnica.com/staff/fatbits/2009/09/metadata-madness.ars ars technica].
