MIME(1)			    General Commands Manual		       MIME(1)

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  sys-
       tem, 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 pro-
       vides 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.

SEE ALSO
       metamail(1), mailto(1), metasend(1), mmencode(1),  richtext(1),	split-
       mail(1),	mailto-hebrew(1)
