MIME stands for Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension and is an Internet standard that extends the format of email to support:

Text in character sets other than ASCII
Non-text attachments
Message bodies with multiple parts
Header information in non-ASCII character sets
MIME’s use, however, has grown beyond describing the content of email and now is often used to describe content type in general including for the web and as a storage for rich content in some commercial products.
