I'd like to register a MIME media type if I could.

I work for a company called Wyndemere, and we've written a package that we'd
like to work seemlessly with the Eudora e-mail system.  After spending some
time on the phone with Eudora's developer support, they convinced me to make
a MIME media type, so here goes:

After plagerizing the format from the other e-mail submissions on your ftp
site, I've come up with the following submission;

Media Type: application
Media subtype name: vnd.seemail
Required parameters: none.
Optional parameters: An optional version parameter can be specified.
Encoding considerations: SeeMail files contain compressed binary data.
Security considerations: none.
Published specifications:
  Specification by example:
    From an SeeMail application, select "Send" from the main application
    screen.  Enter a filename, and click on "OK".
  Specification by filename:
    Typical file extension for the application/vnd.seemail subtype is ".see"
  Specification by Macintosh "Creator" type:
    The seemail datafile is registered with Apple computer as data type "SeeM"
    and creator type "RMed".
  Free viewer:
    A receive-only version of SeeMail is available at:

SeeMail is an application that captures video and sound, and uses bit-wise
compression to compress and archive the two pieces into a single file.  This
file is easily attached to a mail message, and sent via the internet to another
SeeMail application.  With this MIME subtype definition, we will attempt to
make the e-mail/transmission part of the process automatic with a little help
from EudoraPro by Qualcomm, inc.
