I've just started my adventure to make hypermail store binary attachments instead of simply discarding them (and I'll make it deal with multiple lined headers and proper mimed ones).

  1. I'll start modifying my own parse.c now. I guess it's the best fitted for this.
  2. I'll extend the 'struct email' with a linked list of the new 'struct attachment'. It'll contain file name to the binary, file type, name from the mail, content-id etc. I store files right away, and break the hypermail habit of keeping everything in memory since attached (binary) files won't change no matter when they are written to disk :-) I have not yet decided how to generate good unique-but-repeatable file names for attachments. Any suggestions?
