.eml files, How to decrypt them?


Hya,

Mission I have several .eml files (e-mail archive (backup). I'd like to search them, using grep or whatever.

eml2mbox (http://www.broobles.com/eml2mbox/) uses depreciated module (parsedate.rb). -also base64 not supported(?), I do not find base64 command in the script.

eml2mbx (http://luethje.eu/prog/index.htm) under wine does not support 8-bit encoding, (base64?) or something like these.

Thunderbird can convert them, so it should not be hard.

Does anybody have a good idea?

cheers

Perhaps this: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mpack_(Unix)

Ubuntu seems to have it.

Hya,

Thanks. With -t option, unmpack works.

I guess I should have sought with MIME as a key.

cheers
