inconsistency in MIME type of attachment

I have a java mail program which processes the e-mail.

So, when my mail program retrieves a mail , in most cases it works fine.
But there is one unique situation when this is failing. That unique situation is when somebody is forwarding the mail with attachment from entourage. The MIME type is this case is video/x-flv, where as the attachment is a .xls file.

But the original mail coming from the same client(not forwarded) is coming with MIME type application/vmd-excel.

Appreciate if someone can explain me why there is this change in MIME type.
