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.
Install all required CPAN packages, especially File::NFSLock;
and use it like that
mimedump.pl /tmp/output_dir message_file
