This format is called MIME (RFC 1341) digest format. Actually it has quite
some advantages. A good mailreader like gnus can split it automaticaly in
idividual messages (in a seperate folder) or you can use procmail to split
>From one example in the procmail docs:
# The next recipe will split up Digests into their individual messages.
# Don't do this if you use a global lockfile before this recipe (deadlock)
|formail +1 -d -s procmail
LOGFILE=$MAILDIR/from # Put it here, in order to avoid logging
# the arrival of the digest.
# An alternative and probably more efficient solution to splitting up a digest
# would be (only works for standard format mailbox files though):
* ^Subject:.*Other Digest
|formail +1 -ds cat >>this_lists_mailbox
But I don't know for sure if that works, as I never used any digest.
