Careful -- that (corrected) regexp will overoptimistically match strings like: 'United Arab Emirates branch seeks Data

You probably want to use a regexp matcher that doesn't care about newlines -- i.e. it treats the while MIME attachment
as one big string, and you just search for U[:white:]E[:white:]... Though it could be possible that other malformed
MIME is accepted by mail clients' parsers but fails your regexp match. Perhaps [:white:] should really be
[^A-Za-z0-9./] (i.e. a regexp matching characters which aren't valid Base64.
