MIME source code or libraries

I'm writing a custom email client, which works well, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel for extracting and embedding MIME file attachments.

Does anyone know of source code samples or third-party DLLs (free or cheap preferred) for doing this?

I clipped this from the BLAT source code:

// MIME base64 Content-Transfer-Encoding  -- Added in v1.6 by Tim Charron tcharron@interlog.com
#define B64_ENC(Ch) (char) (base64table[(char)(Ch) & 63])
void base64_encode(char *in, char *endin, char *out)
{
   char base64table[] = "ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz0123456789+/";

   int length = endin - in ;

   char *b = out, *data = in;
   for ( ; length > 2; length -= 3, data += 3 ) {
      if ( ((data-in)%54) == 0 ) {*b++ = '\r'; *b++ = '\n';}
      *b++ = B64_ENC(data[0] >> 2);
      *b++ = B64_ENC(((data[0] << 4) & 060) | ((data[1] >> 4) & 017));
      *b++ = B64_ENC(((data[1] << 2) & 074) | ((data[2] >> 6) & 03));
      *b++ = B64_ENC(data[2] & 077);
   }

   if ( length == 1 ) {
      if ( ((data-in)%54) == 0 ) {*b++ = '\r'; *b++ = '\n';}
      *b++ = B64_ENC(data[0] >> 2);
      *b++ = B64_ENC((data[0] << 4) & 060);
      *b++ = '=';
      *b++ = '=';
   } else if ( length == 2 ) {
      if ( ((data-in)%54) == 0 ) {*b++ = '\r'; *b++ = '\n';}
      *b++ = B64_ENC(data[0] >> 2);
      *b++ = B64_ENC(((data[0] << 4) & 060) | ((data[1] >> 4) & 017));
      *b++ = B64_ENC((data[1] << 2) & 074);
      *b++ = '=';
   }
   *b = 0;

   return;
}

If you'd like, I can zip up the complete source and email it to you, just give me your email address.

What language?  I think I have some C source for MIME encoding.

C or C++ would be fine.

Thanks, my email address is

I also need the logic for extracting the sub-parts of the message from the complete text.  Is that in the source you have?  Are you aware of any other sites may have this type of resource? - it's pretty specialised, I know.

Hi dnavarro,

Did you send the complete source for the MIME encoding?  I haven't received it yet.  If it's on the internet somewhere you can just point me to it.  Whats the BLAT?

Thanks.  My email address is:
