Works.

Works.

"inline" or "attachment" is irrelevant: It is just a hint to a
displaying MUA how to visualize an attachment (Cf. RFC2183: The
Content-Disposition Header Field).

Should work.

Dunno.

AFAIK it doesn't.

AFAIK the subject line doesn't matter because what identifies a
message (for patchtracker and in general) is the message-id header
field.  So it should be a proper reply to the message: Using the
message-id header field in the in-reply-to and references header
field.
