I was faced with, for various reasons, mailboxes on my Imap server with
many messages with attachments which, given the quantity of messages would
have been hard work to manually take out.
So I wrote Detach. Detach can read IMAP or POP mailboxes, find all
attachments and copy the files into a specified directory. It can also
optionally skip duplicate filenames and, for messages with attachments
automatically delete those messages for you.
Not currently being developed.
