MIMEKit Framework

MIMEKit is an Objective-C Framework for working with MIME-encoded data.  The framework provides native Objective-C classes for constructing and reading MIME messages, and supports multipart MIME documents with all defined MIME transmission encodings (including pure binary, base64, and quoted-printable).  Individual parts of multipart MIME messages may be read and written independently, and may be encoded with different encodings.

In addition, MIMEKit provides categories on common Objective-C classes (such as UIImage) to provide easy translation between native classes and MIME data.

MIMEKit fully supports XOP+XML, and can be used in the construction and consumption of messages encoded via MTOM (Message Transmission Optimization Mechanism).
