Thanks Linus,

This Outlook add-on looks promising. I will test it. (Note that we are 
using maildir rather than mbox, so extracting will not be needed.)

It seems that this add-on will produce a file (in a maildir mailbox) 
ready for training. If so, I am wondering whether there exist similar 
add-ons for other common mail client software mainly Thunderbird, 
Windows Live Mail, Mac Mail (or whatever Apple calls it). This would be 
nice, because otherwise we would have to process mails (submitted by 
such clients) to get eml attachments.
