You'd better have a limit on that split as well, so that you don't chop up any e-mails that have 70 underscores in it:

(undef, $goodpart) = split /_{70}/, $msg, 2;
Note that since this supposedly is a huge string you create a huge copy while doing this, even if you assign it back to $msg, afaik.

See perltoc if you don't know which perldoc to read!
