When I send a text based file as an attachment (for example a .txt or .m file)
the receipient does not receive the emailed file as an attachment but rather the
text of the files appears as text inside the email.

It's a little annoying since the receipient needes to cut and paste from the
email into a file rather than simply saving the file.

To get around this I can zip a text file and email the zip file, but this is NOT
ideal.
