mboxtract

mboxtract

Extract attachments from (tremendously huge) mbox files.

Places all the attachments in a directory.

Use subdirs to put all attachments into a subdirectory based on the date of the mail they are extracted from.

This was originally created to process an 80.6GB file extracted from GMail.

Usage

Command Line

npm install -g mboxtract
mboxtract --subdirs -o attachments mymbox.mbox

NodeJS

var mboxtract = require("mboxtract");
mboxtract.extract({
    outputDir: "attachments",
    subDirs: true,
    mboxFile: "mymbox.mbox"
});
