Eudora has an interesting technique of saving "embedded graphics" pictures and "attachments" (pictures, PDF, etc) in their own folders, and keeping the actual mail in a rather simple form in an .mbx file .. pointing to the two folders when necessary. Architecturally, it makes some sense, although I think most mailers keep the pictures (in long string mode) inside the .mbx file. This is one of the things addressed by conversion and import-export programs.
Now, I have a huge folder, mostly with lots of worthless .jpg, with my Eudora, going back many years, including all sorts of email forum nothings.
However, about 1% of those (maybe 1000 .jpg) are related to a group of specific emails that I want to archive properly and separately. (Largely corroborative research, using .jpg made by Abbyy Screenshot reader of google and other book text online.)
So I want to read the actual mail of those limited folders with emails to be archived, find the lines like this:
Content-Disposition: inline; filename="file name.jpg
Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="int_1.jpg"
(There may be one more for something like hybrid or multi-part.)
And then copy or move all the matching file names into their own special folders.
And I don't mind learning a script language to do this.
What is my tool of choice ?
Autohotkey ? AutoIt ? Something else ?
Your expertise and thoughts appreciated.
