this is from one of the guys off the chicago perl mailing lists.

you might want to take a
look at Mail::Box [2] on CPAN. Once you've got installed you can interact with 
all sorts of mail folders (mbox, maildir, imap4, pop) with a common interface.

Assuming you've got an mbox format file at /home/bgates/mbox, you could:

    use Mail::Box::Mbox;

    my $folder = Mail::Box::Mbox->new( folder => '/home/bgates/mbox' );

    foreach my $msg ( $folder->messages() ) { 
	print $msg->body(),"\n";

Lazy, and nice to read -- at least for me :) You can do all sorts of 
crazy stuff like deleting, modifying, searching. Well worth a look at
if you need to do lots of work with mail messages.
