I just found out about ripmime while searching the web for a solution to
something that's delaying my final move from Windows to Linux.
You see, I have been using Eudora as a mail client for quite a while, and a
feature of it which I have been unable to identify in any of the free
mailers is the separation between the attachment and the message body
itself. Eudora puts the attachment in a separate folder, while keeping the
textbody in its mail folders. This is nice because it allows me to delete
the attachment without deleting the message along with it -- usually I like
to keep such messages as a record of what went on.
Now ripmime provides us with the possibility of automatically creating the
equivalent of Eudora's attachment folder -- but can it at the same time
delete the attachment from the message file, so the message file can become
If it can, please tell me how to do so; if it doesn't, wouldn't this be a
nice feature, specially if you can wrap a daemon of sorts around it, so
that it constantly monitors the incoming mail box?
Congratulations on a great idea and a fine utility.
