in thread Mail check?

Mail::Util does indeed have a handy read_mbox routine which reads a file and returns a list of references. Only problem with it is that it immediately reads all of the messages in the file into memory. I have several truly huge mailboxes, which cause my Perl process to crash and burn when I try to read them with read_mbox.

So use read_mbox with caution.
