This is most likely a classpath issue. There is likely to be an older
version of mime4j on the classpath.

You probably should be using binary artifacts from Maven central (Maven
default repository) unless you have a reason for building mime4j from

If you are familiar with Subversion or Git, get sources directly from
the repository

I cant say for sure, but I am quite certain that the head of the 0.7
branch should build without errors.

Hope this helps somewhat.
