What is MIME Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension?

Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension broadens the configuration of email messages to help message in character sets other than ASCII, just as connections of sound, video, pictures, and application programs. It was introduced by Bell Communications in 1991 to extend the restricted capacities of email. It permits the clients to trade various types of information documents on the Internet: sound, video, pictures, application programs too. MIME offered assistance for differing content sorts and multi-part messages.
