[ANN] Multipart MIME Email Embedded RFC822 Message Exporter - well somet

 [1/1] from: brett::codeconscious::com at: 1-May-2001 2:39

Introduction For some time now my website has had a section on exporting emails from outlook express by forwarding them as one email and then extracting them using Rebol. There has been quite a bit of interest in this so with the recent release of Rebol/View I thought it was time to give these users a GUI based tool to do the job. Maybe a few will catch on to Rebol. You can save all the parts of type message/rfc822 out to a directory. In effect exporting the embedded messages. Message-Exporter: Under the hood The application reads a multipart MIME email and allows you to list/view the component parts. At this stage the GUI only handles top level parts of the message. It doesn't attempt to recurse down a part which is in itself multipart - though the underlying code that builds the MIME model does actually recurse. Conclusion Even if you don't use Outlook Express you might find this or some of it's supporting components handy. This is my first real application in Rebol/View so any comments are welcome. My understanding of builing Rebol/View GUIs has certainly been deepened by the experience. Bit by bit I'll eventually end up with a Rebol mail client :) Brett. --- Website: Rebsite:
