This is a multipart message in MIME format.
I recognize the message but you'll have to tell us what it is doing in 
/var/mail/netview.

The trap is the new global Acknowldeged  trap, though I am mystified as to 
why you get the Unformatted trap part, because by default NetView will 
format all his own traps whether there is an entry in trapd.conf or not. 
You could always add one if you wanted to format the trap yourself.
But  what have you got set up that is sending this as a mail message? 
You'd have to have some customization in place to do that.

What level of code and what OS are you using?  Has someone customized 
traps in trapd to send mail?

Does anyone out there recognise these messages and could you provide
