How to handle MIME (-like) messages without the MIME-version header field ?
What do IMAP servers typically do in this case ? I believe the UW server
considers it non-mime and returns it as a singlepart message (not sure).
Historical retrospective: MIME recycled the Content-Type header from an
earlier multimedia mail specification instead of using a unique mechanism.
To distinguish between the new and the old mechanisms, the MIME-Version
header was invented.
Consequently, a message with a Content-Type header but not a MIME-Version
header is not MIME.
