NAME

       MIME - Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions

SYNOPSIS

       Not a command -- see the SEE ALSO section for usable commands.

DESCRIPTION

       MIME  is  the  official  proposed standard format for extended Internet
       electronic mail.  The MIME format permits  email  to  include  enhanced
       text,  graphics,  audio,  and more, in a standardized and interoperable
       manner.  If you send  and  receive  mail  with  a  MIME-compliant  mail
       system,  you will be able to send and receive far more than ASCII text.

       Various different people and companies are implementing  MIME-compliant
       software.   This man page was provided, by user request, as part of the
       freely-available  "metamail"  distribution  from  Bellcore.    Metamail
       provides  a  complete MIME implementation, but there may well be others
       at your site, too.  The "SEE ALSO" section only  refers  to  the  tools
       that came as part of the metamail distribution.
