MIME(Multipurpose Internet Mail Extention)
This allows the transmission of Non ASCII data through the email, MIME allows arbitrary data to be encoded in ASCII and sent in a standard email message. Each MIME message includes information that tells the recipient the type of data and the type of encoding used and this information along with the MIME version resides in the MIME header. Typical MIME header looks like,
