I’m working on rewriting my email filtering hacks and I need a
library that can parse unix mbox file format where the embedded
'\nFrom ’ in a message are not quoted. (i.e. one that knows about the
Header Content-Length ).
I’ve been using the rmail library in
plus my own hack to parse the mbox file. ( rubymail’s parser
crashes when give such a file. ) I think I have a fix for
this, but I thought I would check if there are any more recent
projects that can do this.
I poked around Rubyforge and found nothing useful. I am aware of
Tmail, but I’m not sure it solves this problem either. Basically,
I need a ruby version of formail.
If there is a “standard” email handling package, I’d take a look
and see about making it do what I want. At this point all the
email handling packages seem like abandonware…
