After yet another 6-hour session of fighting MIME and various webmailers and e-mail programs about who's right and who's wrong I decided check here. I'm working on a PHP e-mailer class with attachments, SMTP capability, text/html alternative and more. Does anyone know if there is a MIME validator along the lines of W3C's (x)html validators where I can just copy/paste my e-mail's sourcecode and see if it all checks out? Thanks in advance

A quick Google threw this one up, not sure if its what you're looking for though...

What does Message Lint check for?

* Syntax errors in headers, including RFC 822 headers, MIME headers, Delivery Status Notification headers (RFC 1891), Message Disposition Notification headers (RFC 2298) and several other standards-track header fields.
* Use of RFC 822 comments or whitespace in places likely to cause problems.
* Other RFC 822 syntax which is obsolete, deprecated or likely to cause problems.
* Use of non-standard header fields.
* Use of restricted-use header fields (e.g. RFC 2156 headers).
* Use of unregistered tokens in header fields.
* Invalid domain name or MIME-boundary characters
* Duplicate Headers
* Mandatory Headers
* Inconsistant use of content-transfer-encoding, charsets and body text with respect to 8-bit characters.
* Incorrect use of quoted-printable, including warnings for unnecessary use and line-length restrictions.
* Incorrect use of base64, including line-length restrictions.
* Validates Content-MD5 header values (RFC 1864)
* Unfamiliar character set names
* Verifies text parts only use legal characters if the character set is us-ascii, ISO-8859-*, or UTF-8.
* Header or text/plain lines which are too long
* Missing end boundaries on multipart objects
* Misspellings of application/octet-stream
* Mismatch between multipart/report "report-type" param and inner report type.
