that extend beyond traditional text-based e-mail. One example is a
cellular telephone that can retrieve and send MIME-encoded audio
data through IMAP4. While this type of content can be exchanged
natively using IMAP4, some applications will work better if the
message content can be manipulated using schemes external to the
IMAP4 connection. In our cellular telephone example, it might be
preferable for the telephone client to retrieve the audio data
using RTSP. This specifications defines a mechanism for an IMAP4
client to request message content from a server through an external

"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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
