You can use a regular expression like this:

/--boundary-\nContent-Type: image/jpeg; name=[a-zA-Z0-9_]\.[a-zA-Z]+\nContent-Transfer-Encoding: base64\n+[0-9A-Z\/\n]+--boundary-\n*/

Thanks for the reply. But it was not helpful. Basically i need the regular expression starts with Content-Type: Some-Type and ends with something like --boundary-1138-29572-abc-123.

Try this:
(?m)^(?:Content-|-+boundary)

Could you be more specific? You need to determinate with some degree of precision what are in between the limits you remarked, because with this specification you may extract valued data instead.
