I certainly intend to include features of this kind but be aware that those
WINMAIL.DAT things aren't always (ever?) encapsulated in a MIME part.
My solution is to tell them to turn it off if they want to send messages.
It works pretty well, if you're into that kind of thing.

It shouldn't be difficult for plain WINMAIL.DAT; just search for the string
and ignore it and everything below it. You could do this during the
initial copy operation. If you want to get into arbitrary MIME processing,
though, take my advice and don't try to shoehorn it into 1.9x. (I tried
and it was something of a nightmare.) Instead help me figure out how to do
it in 2.0 and thus accelerate the release.
