MailBee.Mime Namespace
MailBee.Mime namespace provides classes and enumerations which can be used by your applications and by MailBee components (such as SmtpMail.Smtp and Pop3Mail.Pop3) for the following major tasks:
  • Automatically parse mail messages in MIME format into a set of easy-to-use properties and collections
  • Prepare mail messages for display in different containers such as browser or textbox control (including coloring quotations, highlighting links, processing embedded and external images, and more)
  • Compose new messages and automatically convert them into MIME format
  • Perform mail merge
  • Modify existing messages (including forwarding an existing message as attachment of a new message)
  • Load and save mail messages and individual parts from/into disk files, streams, strings, arrays
  • With the help of MailBee.Security.Smime class (licensed separately), MailBee.NET can also encrypt/decrypt e-mails, verify signatures, etc
MIME format (RFC2822) is the standard format for storing and transmitting mail messages in the Internet. Also, mail messages saved in this format (.EML files) are understood by most mail reader programs (including Microsoft Outlook Express).
