[Discuss] mutt, mailcap

running fc28, and mutt for mail, using the following ~/.mailcap

# .mailcap

image/jpeg;            eog %s
application/pdf;       evince %s
text/html;             firefox %s
application/msword;    libreoffice %s
application/vnd.openxm libreoffice %s

when i send out a message with the following attachments (as seen by mutt)

  I     1 <no description>                        [text/plain, 7bit, us-ascii, 0.3K]
  A     2 indypass0.jpg                                   [image/jpeg, base64, 3.1M]

  A     8 leaseadd.docx                            [applica/vnd.openxm, base64, 25K]

the .jpg, .pdf, .doc attachments are displayed correctly --
the htm and docx files are not.

no explanation, just displayed as text.

"No matching mailcap entry found.  Viewing as text."

if i try (in mailcap):
image/jpeg;            firefox %s

that shows as expected.

any suggestions would be welcome.
