NAME
       CURLOPT_MIMEPOST - set post/send data from mime structure

SYNOPSIS
       #include <curl/curl.h>

       curl_mime *mime;

       CURLcode curl_easy_setopt(CURL *handle, CURLOPT_MIMEPOST, mime);

DESCRIPTION
       Pass a mime handle previously obtained from curl_mime_init(3).

       This setting is supported by the HTTP protocol to post forms and by the
       SMTP and IMAP protocols to provide the e-mail data to send/upload.

       This option is the preferred way of posting an HTTP form, replacing and
       extending the deprecated CURLOPT_HTTPPOST(3) option.

PROTOCOLS
       HTTP, SMTP, IMAP.

AVAILABILITY
       Since 7.56.0.

RETURN VALUE
       This will return CURLE_OK.

EXAMPLE
       Using  this  option  implies the use of several mime structure building
       functions: see https://curl.haxx.se/libcurl/c/smtp-mime.html for a com-
       plete example.
