25 years since first email attachment

It is 25 years since the invention of Mime, or Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions - the system that made it possible to send attachments.
Since 1992, people have gone on to send rather a lot of them, as the BBC's Rory Cellan-Jones explains.

The first electronic mail lawsuit was in January 1988. Brought by my lawfirm against the Riverside County Sheriff's Office. We settled for $30,000 for an unlawful search of the electronic mail.

On March 11, 1992 the first email attachment based on MIME was sent. On March 12, 1992 the first email response was sent that said, "you forgot the attachment."

The rest is history and a lot of bad language.
