Extracting MIME content from e-mail

Even the best Web-based and standalone e-mail clients, like gmail or thunderburd, do not allow users to directly access MIME parts of an e-mail message (though some simpler clients like KMail do).

To solve this problem, many special utilities exist. One such utility is mimedump from Benjamin Elijah Griffin.

Get it here:

Install all required CPAN packages, especially File::NFSLock;

and use it like that /tmp/output_dir message_file
