[neomutt-devel] limiting to attachments by kind

hi folks..

one more of those "real life problems":

when limiting the folder index to "~X1-"
i can easily select the messages
which have one or more attachments.
so far, so good.

but does anyone have a nice way to
select the attachments which are
at least of one of these kinds?:

  doc/odt/pdf, gif/jpg/png, zip

sometimes i am just looking for those "texts",
then it's "the pics" - and those with ZIPs
usually just contain some EXEs with malware.
and sifting through attachments manually just
isnt the way we like to spend time, right? ;)

so.. any ideas?

oh yes, using "~b pdf" just doesnt work.

pro tip: use "!~G" to disregard those with
encrypted content.  just no use getting
all those "enter passphrase" prompts.
especially annyoing when mutt is asking
*multiple* times for each message. :-(
(havent figured out why this is yet.)
