MIME Browser is a compact JavaFX desktop application for browsing MIME messages that are locally stored in standard EML files. MIME Browser is © 2013–2016 by Christoph Nahr but available for free download under the MIT license.
MIME Browser requires Oracle JRE 8 Update 66 with JavaFX 8 or later, or an equivalent Java runtime environment. Windows users should consult Oracle Java on Windows to avoid Oracle’s unfortunate default Windows JRE. Please see the following for more information:
- The ReadMe file contains usage information and the copyright notice.
- The WhatsNew file contains the annotated version history of the project, including links to weblog posts with further details on each release.
Copies of the ReadMe & WhatsNew files are included with both download packages. The following screenshot shows MIME Browser in action. The ReadMe file explains the various displays and controls. (The e-mail shown is my own because I’m not at liberty to publish anyone else’s mail in a screenshot!)
- Binary & Source Package: version 1.3.4, released on 01 May 2016
MIME Browser requires no installation. Simply extract the contents to any directory of your liking, then study the enclosed ReadMe file for further instructions.
Source Package — MimeBrowserSource.zip (647 KB)
You need NetBeans 8.1 and Oracle JDK 8u92 to load the included project files. The source package also contains a prebuilt Javadoc class reference.
