I use thunderbierd and now it set content type of files to "content-type:" .... Anybody knows how to fix that it's really boring.

What do you mean exactly?

Files inside emails are all going to be MIME encoded, but you're not very clear in exactly what you're doing and what the problem is.

When I attach an excel file to an email it has to put the content type of the file attached "Content-type: application/excel;" but it puts now "Content-type: content-type:;" and it gives me some problems on some apps.

Well I tried attaching an .xlsx file in one email, and an .xls in a different email (both sending/receiving from Thunderbird) and both seemed to send fine for me. The Content-Types are as expected:

Content-Type: multipart/mixed;

Content-Type: application/octet-stream;

name="****.xls"

Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64

Content-Disposition: attachment;

filename="****.xls"

boundary="------------000904040502050606020608"

Although, by happenstance I uninstalled Excel on my computer just yesterday as a matter of fact, which is probably why it's being treated as a generic file attachment for me.
