They're RFC2822.  So for mail in a .pst, presumably the job (of  
export_messages.py) would be to get the attachments and insert them  
into the messages (encoded in base64 or whatever) with the  
appropriate headers.  I planned to write code to do this at some  
point last year, but don't recall getting around to it (and then I  
switched to Mail as my main email client).

Yup.  Is that accessible in Outlook?  I had the feeling it wasn't.   
If you can get the attachments then it's easy enough to use the email  
package to build up the message with those and the plain text.
