Default Delete "mimetempfile"

Is it safe to remove this files from my device?, because there are a lot in the internal storage

I've deleted them with no noticeable effects. I'd like to know what keeps generating them.

Opened up one of those files with a text editor an it seams to be generated by the email app (not sure its gmail or the email one) but they do tend to make going through your internal storage a pain when you scroll through 30 of them >.<

The file is generated by the stock E-mail app and if you remove the plain email and exchange app and download a different one it will rectify the problem
