  The short guide:

  1. Compose a letter using comp.

  2. When you get to a point where you want to include a MIME
     attachment, type the following to include a GIF image (note: the
     '#' must be in the first column):

	#image/gif [Pictures at an Exhibition] /usr/lib/pictures/exhibition.gif

  3. Finish your letter, adding more text or attachments as needed.

  4. Save your letter and exit the editor. At the Whatnow prompt type
     "edit mhn". mhn will automatically format your letter with the
     MIME attachments leaving the original letter in ,##,orig where ##
     is the letter number.

  5. Type "send" at the Whatnow prompt, and poof, you have just sent
     MIME mail. I strongly recommend you practice sending yourself
     MIME mail first.

  For more information, see the mhn(1) man page,
  ftp://ftp.isi.edu/in-notes/iana/assignments/media-types/media-types
  for a list of allowed media types in addition to image/gif, and
