Take a look at rmime.el.  I have been using it with no trouble.

Here is how rmime.el describes itself:

    ;;; rmime.el --- read MIME messages

    ;; Author: Ray Moody <address@hidden>
    ;; Version: $Id: rmime.el,v 1.2 1996/05/30 02:24:58 moody Exp $
    ;; Charset support version 0.3 by J. Chroboczek <address@hidden>
    ;; Keywords: MIME, mail

    ;;; Commentary:

    ;; RMIME provides MIME support for several Emacs message reading
    ;; packages.  RMIME has been designed with RMAIL in mind, but it has
    ;; also been tested with mh-e and VM.  It should work with most other
    ;; major modes as well.

Before loading rmime.el, you need to load charset.el, which is in a
library from 1996 written by Juliusz Chroboczek <address@hidden>.

The rmime.el file says to put this into your .emacs file:

    ;;  (add-hook 'rmail-show-message-hook 'rmime-format)
    ;;  (add-hook 'rmail-edit-mode-hook    'rmime-cancel)
    ;;  (autoload 'rmime-format "rmime" "" nil)

but I do this:

    (load "charset")
    (load "rmime")
    (set-face-foreground 'rmime-markup-face "cyan")
    (define-key rmail-mode-map [f7] 'rmime-mode) ; fn key F7

(For creating MIME messages, I use Marc Andreessen's mime-compose.el,
which he wrote in 1992 before he started Netscape.)

Also, you need to have installed mimencode and then, since the names
have changed, to symbollically link mmencode to mimencode:

    ln -s mimencode mmencode
