Yeah, it's coming across as a "application/octet-stream". Since this is the MIME type for binary data, many mailers won't even attempt to display the contents inline making replying to portions of a patch awkward.

I'm not a Windows guy so I don't know what to recommend but I imagine there's a solution to this problem (perhaps Outlook doesn't recognize the .patch extension and therefore treats it as binary data?).

Sorry to be a nuisance about this, but it really ought to be
Signed-off-by.  Also, if you can send future patches as a plain-text
attachment (or inlined) it would be much appreciated.
