      Description

      I have a number of email messages that contain other email messages as attachments (with multiple levels of nesting).

      The email attachments are parts with "Content-Type: message/rfc822" but are not being recognized as such.

      Attached is an example email, with the multiple levels of attachments:

      • Subject: Test email within email
        • Subject: Email within email test
          • Subject: Stand-up today

       

      I would like to see 3 separate emails parsed out (top level, 1st level attached email, 2nd level attached email), but I only get 1 email and 1 unnamed text attachment:
