I was inspired by your work and wanted to do some more detailed reporting
on what was deleted...I found that it was a more difficult parsing task
than I thought it initially would be...so I started over and wrote a script
that uses the Mime-Tools package...

One word of caution for people - remember to leave the mbox "From" header
in or your archiving won't work!  I know this has been discussed a lot on
this list in the past...I just overlooked it in my script...took a while
to track that one down.

Anyway, it's at:


The "deleted" report shows you the MIME type and recommended filename if
there was one.
