I am pleased to announce that there is now a MIME upgrade available
for the MH 6.7 release. The release of the
Multi-media MH package
implements the new IETF work on Multi-media 822 (MIME). This
allows you to include things like audio, graphics, and the like, in
your mail messages.
For more information on MIME, drop a note to
and ask to be added to the ietf-822 discussion group.
This package is openly available but is NOT in the public domain.

file mh-mime.tar.Z (for MH 6.7 or MH 6.7.1)
mh6.7.2-mime.tar.Z (for MH 6.7.2 only)
As you may know, MH 6.7.2 was recently released. This distribution
does NOT have MIME-capabilities. The next distribution, MH 6.7.3,
which is not yet scheduled for release, will be MIME-capable.
ps: I was going to release this when the MIME RFC came out, but since
Nathaniel released his, it is time to put market forces to work.
