Question

Do you know why I cannot open "mime" e mail?

Answer

This question was answered on February 18, 2004. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

E-mail client software determines a file's type by examining the MIME type declared in the e-mail header information Helper applications or external viewers, are used by e-mail applications to display files A helper application opens the file in a separate window and does not involve the e-mail software Helper applications also can be used by a web browser to interpret and display files

Using Outlook Express, you can view the source data exactly as it was sent to the e-mail client complete with header information and encoded attached file
