implementation of MIME

 Metamail is an implementation of Multi-purpose Internet Mail

 Metamail is configurable and extensible via the "mailcap" mechanism
 described in an informational RFC that is a companion to the MIME
 document. Metamail can be used to turn virtually any mail reader
 program into a multimedia mail reader. For information about how
 to change mail readers so that they can use Metamail, please read
