I was trying to keep it simple. I got the impression that your
concern was potentially needing to enter a passphrase to individually
decrypt each message. Anyway, just throw in the appropriate munpack
calls above to handle the mime parts.
There was not exactly a "concern" - I just said that I was not aware of
a tool to do the job, and I still am not. What you're proposing is to
write an own tool (script).
Thank you for the suggestion to use munpack, this is something I had not
considered. I was thinking of options that would produce (almost) the
exact same mbox that we'd get if mail to subscribers were not encrypted.
With the munpack approach, I think it might be trickier to arrive "back"
at that (same original MIME types for each section, etc.) I understand
that initially this kind of correctness might not matter - you just want
to see that the list is not being misused and that's all.
This can definitely be done. I just have other tasks to work on...
