macro/prompt to trigger mailcap?

How do you handle attachments?

Currently, I use "auto_view text/html" and "implicit_autoview" with 
mailcap. However, I would like to not display attachments via mailcap 
automatically on opening a mail, but only after pressing another key. 
(Never trust attachments…)

Is there any way one could implement this in mutt currently? Maybe with 
some kind of macro?


If you upload your address book to "the cloud", I don't want to be in it.
