33 The <application>GMime</application> package contains a set of
34 utilities for parsing and creating messages using the Multipurpose
35 Internet Mail Extension (MIME) as defined by the applicable RFCs. See the
36 <ulink url="http://spruce.sourceforge.net/gmime/">GMime web site</ulink>
37 for the RFCs resourced. This is useful as it provides an API which adheres
38 to the MIME specification as closely as possible while also providing
39 programmers with an extremely easy to use interface to the API functions.
