I have recently had 2 mails sent to myself with no free form text, just attachments...the first one was a .EXE file ( deleted that one straight away; it had the KLEZ worm on it ), the second mail was a .MIM extension....after trawling through lots of web sites etc it turns out that .MIM is a mime extension, and it contains pictures???

well the only good thing about AOL is that it warns you before downloading attachments, curiousity nearly killed me ( i was tempted to download the file to see what virus it was....sick puppy i know!!!)

Anyway, can anybody explain to me what exactly a mime file is ( does )

MIM is a multipart file in the Multi-Purpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) format; often created as the result of sending e-mail with attachments in AOL. The files in a multipart MIM file can be "opened" (unarchived and separated into individual files) using Winzip or a similar program. ""
