Add some kind of extension mechanism for parsing messages that violate the standards
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MIME4J-117
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MIME4J-117
             Project: JAMES Mime4j
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 0.6
            Reporter: Markus Wiederkehr
             Fix For: 0.7


Mime4j claims that "the parser has been designed to be extremely tolerant against messages
violating the standards" right on its front page (http://james.apache.org/mime4j/).

The question is how far should Mime4j go in order to keep that promise. For example, should
extra data following a valid transfer encoding be ignored or should the parser fall back to
7-bit in that case?

Mime4j probably needs some kind of extension mechanism that allows a user to define a custom
behavior to deal with this sort of problems.
