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

| [3. application/octet-stream]...
| [5. application/pdf]...

Which is  completely useless.

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


  (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.
