Hi

From time to time I receive message, perfectly displayed in thunderbird,
but in gnus I only see:

`----


Which is  completely useless.

I tried the setting 
  (setq gnus-mime-display-multipart-alternative-as-mixed nil) 
  (setq  mm-discouraged-alternatives     nil)


Or 

  (setq  mm-discouraged-alternatives      '("text/html"  "multipart/related" "multipart/alternative")) ; quotes ok
  (setq gnus-mime-display-multipart-alternative-as-mixed nil) ; 

None helped.

What is wrong here?

Help, message I cannot read are useless.

Thanks 

Uwe Brauer

The problem is likely that the sender (or sender's MUA) did not specify
a proper mime type for the 3rd component.  You could tab to it and type
t to select the type of application/attachment.  gnus should be able to
display it then.

That was very useful, thank you.
