Vendor Independent Messaging (VIM)
VIM (Vendor Independent Messaging) is an application program interface (API) that
facilitates the exchange of e-mail and attachments between programs from different vendors.
From a user standpoint, VIM works in a manner similar to the Microsoft Messaging Application
Program Interface (MAPI). The
first implementation of VIM to appear on the market was cc:Mail, which was released by Lotus, now a division of
Vim, a similarly-named but unrelated application, is an enhanced version of the vi text editor distributed
with UNIX systems.
