    Description

      This bug is submitted to re-look at java.util.Base64 to see it should be less strict when checking the padding, especially with MIME. Feedback from Bill Shannon is that there is a lot of incorrectly encoded mail and that he had to provide an option to JavaMail to control the strictness.

      It has also been suggested that getEncoder(int,byte[]) should be renamed to getMimeEncoder.
