VMime is a powerful C++ class library for parsing, generating or
editing Internet RFC-822 and MIME messages. VMime is designed
to provide a fast and an easy way to manipulate Internet mail
It also includes support for using messaging protocols (POP3, IMAP,
SMTP and maildir) with a lot of features supported: listing folders,
downloading and adding messages to folders, extracting parts from
message, getting and setting message flags and a lot more.
This package contains an old and deprecated version of libvmime.
You need it only if the software you are using hasn't been updated
to work with the newer version and the newer API.
