I disagree, one should break up the MIME parts. There is not value in
keeping MIME beasts in your file system. If it's encrypted MIME there
should be a command that decrypts and detangles mails. Why store a
mail encrypted on your encrypted hard drive, I always decrypt and verify
my mails only once.

I would love this, obscure mails arrive and the system converts them
into what I prefer - separate files, all text utf8 and so on ... ;-)

Best regards, Yoshi
