Attachments and Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) types
The MIME type of an attachment is determined from the file's extension. The MIME type identifies the type of content that is being sent, and can determine how that data is transferred.
The following is a list of MIME types and their corresponding filename
extensions. You are not limited to these extensions, but if you use an unknown
extension, App Engine will assign it the MIME type

|audio/x-aiff||aif, aifc, aiff|
