It still seems mighty inconvenient to have save the text part and run 
uudecode on it from the command line. Here are some suggestions:

* Adopt the Out***k approach and look for anything like uuencode in the 
first 50 lines of each message. Present that part as if it were a MIME part.

* Allow uudecode to be run on the marked (or autodetected) portion of an 
email by mouse click (right click?)

* Allow piping of emails to external programs, of course only by user 
interaction, never automagically. Could that be something one could use a 
filter for?

We should, I think, ignore the mode given in the begin line and always save 
the file with the current umask and no x bit set.
