Can someone help me find the object I haven't referenced properly in the Test Class?

I'm not a developer, so I don't really know what I'm doing, and this code is ugly.  When I run the Test Class, it says that I'm trying to de-reference a null object.  Can someone tell me what object hasn't been referenced?  The fatal error is at line 84 (I think).  This is from the failed Test: 
 Class.attachEmailToMIReports.handleInboundEmail: line 8, column 1
Class.attachEmailToMIReports_Test.testAttachEmail: line 84, column 1
public class attachEmailToMIReports_Test {

    Static Contact thisContact;
    Static Opportunity thisOpportunity;
    Static Market_Intelligence_Reports__c thisMIReports;
    Static Messaging.InboundEmail email;
    Static Messaging.InboundEnvelope env;
    Static Messaging.InboundEmailResult result;
    //method to set all of the object values needed for testing.
    //This would be where you would call a test factory
    //to set values for the objects need for the test
    //for instance "thisContact = testFactory.InsertAccount();"
    //testFactory being a different test class that has
    //a function InsertAccount() that inserts an account object and returns it.
    static void init() {
        // Create a new email and envelope object.
