It is not part of OpenPGP but section 2.4 of rfc2440 says: Note that many applications, particularly messaging applications, will want more advanced features as described in the OpenPGP-MIME document, RFC 2015. An application that implements OpenPGP for messaging SHOULD implement OpenPGP-MIME. BTW, we just had a last call for an updated PGP/MIME RFC, So if you are going to implement that, you should consult draft-ietf-openpgp-mime-06.txt Werner -- Werner Koch Omnis enim res, quae dando non deficit, dum habetur g10 Code GmbH et non datur, nondum habetur, quomodo habenda est.
