If been wanting to save e-mail messages to a filoe, and then manipulate the
file with a program like awk in order to be able to import them into a
One of the problems is that when you save messages to a file, all the headers
are saved, so I'm hoping that awk can manipulate the file to remove all but
the most significant ones, and someone has given me a sample script that seems

These ones are hard to read and save:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"
These are not quite as hard to read or save, but still cause problems:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=utf-8
These ones are easy to read and save:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="us-ascii"
Can anyone suggest a way of making it easier to read and save messages in
