  RFC 2045 (rfc2045) - Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) Part One
Character Set The term "character set" is used in MIME to refer to a method of converting a sequence of octets into a sequence of characters.
MIME Header Fields MIME defines a number of new RFC 822 header fields that are used to describe the content of a MIME entity.
Content-Type Defaults Default RFC 822 messages without a MIME Content-Type header are taken by this protocol to be plain text in the US-ASCII character set, which can be explicitly specified as: Content-type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii This default is assumed if no Content-Type header field is specified.

  MIME - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
MIME is specified in five parts starting with RFC 2045, RFC 2046, and RFC 2047.
MIME is also a fundamental component of communication protocols such as HTTP, which requires that data be transmitted in the context of e-mail-like messages, even though the data may not actually be e-mail.
MIME defines a collection of e-mail headers for specifying additional attributes of a message including content type, and defines a set of transfer encodings which can be used to represent 8-bit binary data using characters from the 7-bit ASCII character set.

 Mime artist - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mime supposedly began in the Theater of Dionysus in Athens, perhaps as far back as the third century B.C.E. These mimes were not entirely silent, as we think of mimes today, but the spoken element was minimized.
Modern mime is a branch of theatre in which the performer usually uses no voice but instead performs using spacial and corporeal movement, full-body physical expressions, body language and gesture, often with little or no theatrical props.
Amateur mime artists often use a very limited number of routines from the repertoire of mime artist Marcel Marceau, such as 'walking against the wind', 'peeling a banana', and 'pretending to be in an invisible box'.

 MIME - Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions
The MIME standard is a combined effort of making multipart, multi-character sets, multi-media e-mail widely available on the Internet, as opposed to the X.400 availability as we presented it.
Furthermore, to achieve a better understanding of MIME implementation, some examples were presented, and some implementations of MIME were discussed - to enable the curious reader to continue his/her inquiries on the subject.
Since MIME is not designed to cover all the requirements of electronic mail, some issues were omitted.

 Mime Artistry Thesis @ ArtisticNudity.com (Artistic Nudity)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Another typical feature of miming is the lack of speech on the part of the mime.
Mime is common as a street performance medium.
It is widely reported that people who are into clowning (clowns) have a deep dislike of people who are into mime artistry, and likewise that mimes hate clowns.

 A Technical Overview of MIME - Web Developer's Journal Archives
MIME defines a standard method for extending the capabilities of the RFC 822 e-mail message without breaking those delivery systems which are based only on RFC 821 and 822 specifications.
The MIME Content-Type field is divided into two parts, the type and subtype, separated by a slash, with the possibility of parameters depending on the type/subtype.
A gateway which is wise to MIME could send rejection messages as a Content-Type: multipart/mixed, with one part being a plain text explanation of the reasons for rejection, and the other being the rejected message, which can easily be translated to its proper, human recognizable, format by a MIME compliant mail reader.

 CodeGuru: E-Mail File Attachments Using MIME   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
MIME is an e-mail message protocol (described in RFCs 1521 and 1522) that allows messages to incorporate non-text content while still remaining compliant with RFC 822.
MIME takes advantage of that by superimposing a format for the body text, and it also defines some header lines of its own.
MIME completes the illusion of file attachments by allowing the message body to be divided into distinct parts, each with their own headers.

 American Mime Theatre - Home Page
This year the American Mime Theatre—a Manhattan-based professional performing company and school—is celebrating the 55th anniversary of its founding in 1952 by Paul J. Curtis, who invented the artistic medium that has come to be called American Mime.
American mime is a unique combination of playwriting, acting, and moving that is quite different from the familiar French school of mime exemplified by Marceau.
Curtis stresses that the study of American mime is for serious performers interested in deepening their understanding of acting and moving and really embodying what it means to be a professional performer.

 MIME Overview
To promote interoperability between implementations, the MIME standard document specifies a minimal subset of the above mechanisms that are required for an implementation to claim to conform to the MIME standard.
MIME specifies sets of values that are allowed for various fields and parameters.
The MIME standard, functioning as a constitution for the MIME community, states that new standard content types can be defined only by revising the standard (as opposed to the registration procedure for other types of extensions).

 Mimetypes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
MIME is a standard for describing different types of information This was originally meant to be used to specify encoding for different types of information into text.
The standard MIME is also used in other types of communication where there is a need for specifying which type of information is used.
Normally the conversion from MIME to files is handled by the e-mail application.

 MIME Tutorial
MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) is a term that crops up quite often in the context of Internet mail, news and even World Wide Web.
In this document, the basic use of MIME will be presented in hopes that a simple approach can answer most questions that arise.
The "text" part is called the MIME type and the "plain" is the subtype.

 What is MIME? - A Word Definition From the Webopedia Computer Dictionary
Many e-mail clients now support MIME, which enables them to send and receive graphics, audio, and video files via the Internet mail system.
There are many predefined MIME types, such as GIF graphics files and PostScript files.
MIME was defined in 1992 by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).

 S/MIME and OpenPGP
They rely on the multipart/signed MIME type that is described in RFC 1847 for moving signed messages over the Internet.
The OpenPGP protocol, which is on the IETF standards track, is described in OpenPGP Message Format, RFC 2440, which is being revised by draft-ietf-openpgp-rfc2440bis.
The MIME wrapping for OpenPGP is described in MIME Security with Pretty Good Privacy, RFC 3156.

 The MIME Information Page
MIME means Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions, and refers to an official Internet standard that specifies how messages must be formatted so that they can be exchanged between different email systems.
MIME is a very flexible format, permitting one to include virtually any type of file or document in an email message.
The MIME format is also very similar to the format of information that is exchanged between a Web browser and the Web server it connects to.

 RFC 1521 (rfc1521)
The current standards for the mapping of X.400 messages to RFC 822 messages specify either that X.400 non-textual body parts must be converted to (not encoded in) an ASCII format, or that they must be discarded, notifying the RFC 822 user that discarding has occurred.
Borenstein & Freed [Page 21] RFC 1521 MIME September 1993 That is, the first bit in the stream will be the high-order bit in the first byte, and the eighth bit will be the low-order bit in the first byte, and so on.
For this reason, it is specified that MIME entities of type message/partial must always have a content- Borenstein & Freed [Page 41] RFC 1521 MIME September 1993 transfer-encoding of 7-bit (the default).

 [No title]
MIME's Content-Type header field and media type mechanism has been carefully designed to be extensible, and it is expected that the set of media type/subtype pairs and their associated parameters will grow significantly over time.
When a MIME entity is of type "message/external-body", it consists of a header, two consecutive CRLFs, and the message header for the encapsulated message.
MIME mail servers must use the same Content-ID field on the returned message that was used in the original "message/external-body" entities, to facilitate such matching.

 SOAP Messages with Attachments   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
The MIME multipart mechanism for encapsulation of compound documents can be used to bundle entities related to the SOAP 1.1 message such as attachments.
The methods described here treat the multipart MIME structure as essentially a part of the transfer protocol binding, i.e., on par with the transfer protocol headers as far as the SOAP message is concerned.
MIME structure along with other content is to be viewed as a specific method for carrying SOAP 1.1 messages in any protocol capable of transferring MIME-encoded content.

 Definition of MIME
Mapping messages into and out of MIME format is typically done automatically by an email client or by proprietary mail servers when sending or receiving Internet (SMTP/MIME) e-mail.
One of the explicit goals of the MIME definition was to not require changes to pre-existing e-mail servers or clients.
Although originally defined for MIME e-mail, the content-type header and MIME type registry is reused in other Internet protocols such as HTTP.

It includes a simple parser for testing, but final applications will need to use a MIME parser like the one developed for the Mozilla mail/news project (see libmime).
S/MIME is based on CMS messages, but CMS messages have many useful applications even outside the context of MIME (wallets, data storage, generic messaging, etc.).
The goal is to integrate with the MIME parsers/generators that have already been built, debugged, and stood the test of time.
