Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) is an Internet standard which defines a format for email and other textually transmitted data. It is used widely in the modern Internet. Since the proper functioning of the MIME protocol is vital to modern infrastructure and society, the dependability of MIME implementations must be verified. This test suite can be used to test MIME implementations for security flaws and robustness problems.
