Subject: [PATCH/RFC 0/2] recurse into message/rfc822 parts
Date: Sat, 16 May 2020 10:03:20 +0000
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Multipart parts aren't the only things which nest,
message/rfc822 attachments can contain any sort of full

I noticed gmime supports this while evaluating(*) it to replace
Email::MIME, and it seems needed for IMAP support.

Email::MIME seemed to attempt to support descending into
message/*, but didn't do it properly, so it never got

There's definitely some message/rfc822 attachments in various
archives out there, and it looks like message/global is becoming
a thing, and some message/news for legacy stuff...

gmime supports message/rfc2822, too, which doesn't seem
specified anywhere...

Search indexing multiple From/To/Cc/Subject/Message-ID/List-Id
headers is straightforward, Date is not...

Also, note the t/data/message_embed.eml example includes
a circular reference :)   I have no intention of doing threading
for attached messages (AFAIK no mail client does this), but
maybe making the contents of References / In-Reply-To is
a helpful thing in general.
