POP3 - Saving an image attachment only.

I wrote some code below (Code1 block) which will read a pop3 email account
and will open each email in the inbox.
What I want my code to do is only pull the attachment; as you see below I
basically output everything. Is there an easy way to just pull
attachments? (NOTE, the only attachements that I want to pull are images)
================================================== =========
I also tried this, but for some reason the part.get_filename Always equal
"None"

msg = email.message_from_string(mstring)
for part in msg.walk():
fn = part.get_filename()
if fn <>None:
filenames.append(fn)
attachedcontents.append(part.get_payload())
print "im here"
*..::CODE1:..
================================================== =========*
for email in items:
id, size = string.split(email)
resp, text, octets = server.retr(id)
text = string.join(text, "\n")
file = StringIO.StringIO(text)
message = rfc822.Message(file)
print message.fp.read()

*..::OUTPUT1::..
================================================== =========*
