Summary: A program for handling multimedia mail using the mailcap file.
Metamail is a system for handling multimedia mail, using the mailcap
file.  Metamail reads the mailcap file, which tells Metamail what
helper program to call in order to handle a particular type of non-text
mail.  Note that metamail can also add multimedia support to certain
non-mail programs.

Metamail should be installed if you need to add multimedia support to
mail programs and some other programs, using the mailcap file.

  - If you want to know how not to write secure software
    then metamail is a good worked example. Mind you to
    be fair the original author wrote it as a prototype
    MIME tool and it stuck. Anyway it might actually be
    safe now. More from the Linux Security Audit Project.
