After playing around with the mailbox an email modules i noticed some 
strange behaviours:

after the first message is parsed, i got some (kind of parsing errors).

My code:

def test_copy(infile, outfile):
     from mailbox import UnixMailbox
     from email import message_from_file as mff
     try:
         fd = open(infile, 'r')
         try:
             for message in UnixMailbox(fd, mff):
                 print message
                 print '***********************************************'
         finally:
             fd.close()
     except:
         pass
     return

output from script above:

....
In-Reply-To: <3FB8D0C0.60300 at web.de>
Sender: someone at somewhere.de

Nein, leider noch nicht, komm auch erst in paar Tagen dazu.
