Default MIME Attachments Are 20 Years Old Today

Another milestone passed today in the world of computing. Twenty years ago today the first email attachment was sent, signaling the flood of MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension ) that was to follow. It certainly has grown to monstrous proportions, topping out at a trillion attachments each and every day. The historic text message was accompanied by a picture of four Bellcore employees (the Telephone Chords barbershop quartet), and a song "Let me send you e-mail".
