This can be controlled through mount points by setting them as binary but
using this to solve portability problems is discouraged. If mutt needs the
temporary file created to be binary, then the suggested change to the mode
is what's recommended. No one can assume that users are going to set
their mount points as binary (or any other global work-around for that
