mail client: mutt

I have problem opening pdf files directory from my mail client. Saving
pdf attachments and then opening works fine.

Mail client shows following mime type for the attachment:

[-- Typ: application/pdf, Kodierung: base64, Größe: 130K --]

$mypc:> cat /etc/mailcap | grep pdf
application/pdf; evince '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY" ; nametemplate=%s.pdf

I am clueless. Can someone give an advice...
