Emil v2 is a filter for converting Internet Messages. It supports three basic formats: MIME, SUN Mailtool and plain old style RFC822. It can be used with sendmail, as a loopback mailer, or as a prefilter or backend program with a mail client program, or as a plain filter.

Following pages are available:

Emil may be used to convert incoming Sun attachments (as generated by mailtool) into MIME-conformant attachments by using procmail. Just add following lines to your ~/.procmailrc (should precede all other filters):

# convert X-sun-attachment into MIME format
:0 fw
* ^Content-Type: X-sun-attachment
| emil -F MIME -C latin1
