MIME and Transfer-Encoding

Common encoding schemes used by MIME include base64 and quoted-printable. Please note the goal here is to keep the text transmitted using SMTP protocol as 7-bit ASCII code regardless the original message contents. This transfer encoding will be undone on the receiving end to restore the original message. This way, images, sounds and any other binary contents can be sent as SMTP email.
