I am interested in getting a of a grammar for parsing email
(headers, MIME attachments, etc)?
I have read the RFC 822 but I'm a bit confused.

Any help would be much appreciated
[Parsing mail headers with a formal grammar doesn't work very well, partly
because the grammar is so ugly, largely because real mail headers frequently
don't match the grammar. There's plenty of freeware mail parsers available,
no need to write yet another one. -John]
