How to read mime encoded files? We have converted .msg file to .mhtml for better reading without MS Outlook. But we cannot read encoded text in bounced mails. message is as

Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8
Content-Transfer-Encoding: base64
Message-ID: <9C7556267CD1450D9A218C33DE90623C.MAI@home>

how to read this? Any programme to read this? Or any exe is available for that?


You can use an online base64 converter to decode this type of email.

  • Yes, we already tried with online Base-64 decoder. But we want to implement in our programme. So we have to create exe for that. Any free exe is available? Or any open programme? – IT researcher Mar 21 '13 at 9:51
  • We got one exe from sourceforge.net. But in that we have to input the base64 part of message. It will not load whole file. Is we load entire items in file, it saying that "Data contains no legal base64 code!". What we have to do? How we can decode all items in it? – IT researcher Mar 21 '13 at 10:14
  • The best applications for reading emails formatted with MIME encoding are email applications. Perhaps a better approach would be to go back a step and describe why you are doing what you are doing so those here can provide alternative approaches. – Paul Mar 21 '13 at 10:14
