Downloading attachments from IMAP using Perl

ewhitt has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Could anyone recommend a Perl module that supports IMAP w/ TLS/SSL that supports downloading of attachments? I have been looking at Mail::IMAPClient, but I am not sure if it will do it (yet). I am still playing with it. I am trying to check for emails every 5 mintues (via cron) and download any new messages with "PIC" in the subject from Gmail. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    This isn't perl, but a very long time ago I used the mailutils part of the UW imap suite to great success, and it does support TLS/SSL.

    It's a collection of C utilities that would be easy to script, or you could borrow their code to make an XS api: http://www.washington.edu/imap/

    Net::IMAP::TLS + Email::MIME should solve your problem...
