        Description

        Users of JavaMail often create DataHandlers with an object and an unknown
        (no DataContentHandler) MIME type. The object is often a simple type such
        as a byte array or a String. JavaMail fails to "serialize" these types
        because DataHandler doesn't know how to convert these objects to a byte stream.
        DataHandler should do the obvious "conversion" for byte arrays and Strings.
