Most tests have been readed with MIME4J-190. We didn't readd binaries.

> In src/test/resources/testmsgs we have files with unknown copyright.
> I guess they are test files from the Perl MIME-tools library written by
> ZeeGee software (http://www.zeegee.com/products/MIME-tools/).
> I also verified that every msg file (the original encoded messages are
> only the msg files, the others are expanded/elaborated data/expected
> results generated from that messages) is in the following file:
> MIME-tools-6.200_02.tar.gz
> I found that file here: http://search.cpan.org/~eryq/MIME-tools-6.200_02/

> The best solution would be to create a new test suite based on artificially generated
data (or public corpus, as Norman suggested: http://spamassassin.apache.org/publiccorpus/)
