After reading other posts on other matters, light came at least...

def main():
    fp = file(folderfile)
    folder = mailbox.UnixMailbox(fp, factory=email.message_from_file)
    for message in folder:
        print message

This works as expected, as usual in Python, the simple things _ARE_
simple, the complexe ones not difficult ;-).

Sorry for any inconvenience.
