mod_mbox's parsing routines don't support multipart parsing, but I don't
think it would be that hard to add.  I'll take a quick look at the
MIME multipart spec to see what it requires.

mod_mbox's parsing is fairly straightforward.  I'll assume that
mod_pop3's is in the similar hackish vein.  =-)  -- justin
