the use of mailbox.py for processing email in an O'Reilly
"Archived mail can be stored using many different file formats. The mailbox module in the Python standard library supports reading and modifying five different formats, all formats that are primarily used on Unix systems.
The mailbox module was greatly enhanced in Python 2.5. For a long time the mailbox module only supported reading mailboxes, not modifying them. Gregory K. Johnson, as his project for Google's 2005 Summer of Code, wrote code for adding and deleting messages; these new features went into Python 2.5, released in September 2006.
