Yes, almost..I tried with this simple:
mbox_file = file('../spam1.txt')
mbox_obj = mailbox.PortableUnixMailbox(mbox_file, email.Message)
msg = mbox_obj.next() # <-----what's wrong with this??
But I got:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "testMailBox.py", line 6, in ?
msg = mbox_obj.next()
File "/usr/lib/python2.3/mailbox.py", line 35, in next
return self.factory(_Subfile(self.fp, start, stop))
TypeError: 'module' object is not callable
