The message got quarantined, right? Then you can run
file /path/to/quarantine/on/to/the/attachment/that/bothered/file
... That way you'll see what exactly it is on about.

BTW... "Registry files" are one of two things... The data files
consisting the registry or ... plain text files with the normal
windowsy look... My guess would be that the file commands magic for a
windoze reg-text-file is pretty oportunistic... and triggers on
something simple.
How to amend that? Either munge your magics or pester the file command
