how to find whether MIME is enabled in my server or not?

Hello All,

I am trying to insert attachment in email sent using Open VMS mail facility.

But I observed that I cant send attachment if i didnt have MIME or any other similar tools.

How to find whether MIME is enabled or not in my server?

   Opening multiple threads for a single problem is not the best way to
communicate:

      dire sys$system:*mime*
      help mime
      mime

   VMS V7.1-2 (?) is pretty old.  Even the latest versions of the MIME
utility are not especially good; old ones are worse.

   I don't know if you can.  In my experience, it always came with VMS
(later versions, probably), but it might have been in a patch kit for
your version.  I haven't kept old VMS versions running on my (few) Alpha
systems, so I don't know much about yours.

   If it's not there, and you can't find it, then you might be stuck
with "pine" or "mpack".

   I've never needed to use VMS MAIL to send attachments, so I know
nothing, but I'd expect that Web search suggested earlier to find many
how-to explanations.  It's certainly been discussed here and in
comp.os.vms many times over many years.
