The Multipart/Report MIME content-type is a general 'family' or
'container' type for electronic mail reports of any kind. Although
this memo defines only the use of the Multipart/Report content-type

"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
