Before win95 and the WWW, files sent in email were
'uuencoded' (Yes it has a man page). Later people
wanted to send more so MIME (MultiMedia Internet Mail Extensions)
types were invented. When the WWW came along it adopted
MIME types. As more type of computers came on the
internet, more MIME types were added.
If you look in the mail header fo something like
eudora you'll see:
X-Mailer: Windows Eudora Light Version 1.5.4 (32)
Subject: test of attachment #3
The labels to each line indicate a MIME type.
So, 'Mime-Version: 1.0' tells you that the
email message is using version 1.0 of the
MIME standard to product the email field
Do you need more information?
