MIME-tools is a collection of Perl5 MIME:: modules for parsing, decoding, and generating single- or multipart (even nested multipart) MIME messages. If all you want to do is send messages with attachments, then you probably want the lighter-weight MIME::Lite.

MIME-tools was chosen to be the core of the general-purpose email filter MIMEDefang, a product of the anti-spam experts at Roaring Penguin Software.

wrench MIME-tools is now being maintained by David F. Skoll. We pass our software on to others when we feel they can do a better job maintaining and extending it than we can — it keeps good code from becoming obsolete.
