reading and decoding email attachments

P: n/a
Hello,

i want to write a PHP4 script that reads POP3 or IMAP mail and can
decode the possible attachments in the email. I've looked around for
some classes to do this, and found a few, but most of them seem to be
very lowlevel or lacking in functionality. Is there a good script,
class or example for decoding email attachments?
I have used a class called attachmentread, but this class expects an
attachment as disposition: attachment, while my email with attachments
are all inline... any ideas?

Yeah, but in my (limited!) experience, the IMAP library installed.
I've just finished writing a function to parse a raw message returned
from a basic POP3 class to an array so I can mangle it because I want
an application people without IMAP can use.

OTOH, Olaf, it doesn't seem like it'd be that hard to change the class
to accept inline attachements. But maybe not; I'm pretty new to
mangling email.

Did you try this MIME parser class? It supports any type of message
structure including attachments:
