3. MIME viewers

The list of programs that should be used to view attachments, each corresponding to a MIME type. MIME types are two-component strings like image/jpeg or application/x-tar' declaring the type of data contained in an attached file.

The viewer command is taken as the name of a program. To launch a viewer, the interface downloads the attachment into a temporary file on disk, passing its path as the argument of the command.
