MIME is "Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions," the way non-text
(non-ASCII) elements are encoded in email--sound, web links, images,
etc., and HTML encoded messages. Probably your mail is configuring
text in HTML even though this may not be apparent as you are typing.
Most mail packages have a plain text option, or an option to
automatically convert HTML mail to plain text for those recipients
whose email programs cannot read HTML. If one of these options is NOT
set in your email application it can be problematical for software
that is converting messages to audio for the visually impaired. Jim
speaks of a duplicate message, so it may be a different problem, but
you might check settings for your outgoing mail anyhow for one of the
options mentioned.
