Download: Mime Parser by Moth Software
Version: 1.0 of 04-Mar-2019
Content: Classes for parsing emails. The same code is used in Mail Archiver.
Format: .zip


  • Parses all mails. Really all. Everything that comes in partially, screwed up or totally crappy.
  • All mails have content for text and html. No "this email is html only" as text, which you can't search.
  • Mojibake can be recovered. A typical example is "Mit freundlichen Grüssen" which is "Mit freundlichen Grüssen". And no, a DefineEncoding followed by ConvertEncoding doesn’t fix Mojibake.
  • The most complex attachment names are handled correctly (filename*0*=utf-8''%D0%A1%D0%A3%D0%BF%D1%80%D0%98%D0%94%20%52%75%73%2E%70; filename*1*=%70%74%78).
  • Image and PDF attachments are shown inline with the mail. All other attachments have a clickable document preview.
  • Shows nice quotes for simple mails.
  • Optionally external content can be downloaded and saved into the html part of the mail.
  • Can show mails in DarkMode when there is no style information.
  • Can show a context menu in the preview which offers a simple hook to do something with the attachment. Clicking on an attachment in the preview has the same hook.
  • Mac only currently!
  • MBS plugins required!!!

Example and documentation

The download contains an example app, a folder with mails and the documentation.
