Subject Re: error blocking camel-mail consumer

You can try with mapMailMessage=false, and then use Camel's error
handler if parsing the body / attachments of the mail fails.

Though there was a bug in Camel when using mapMailMessage=false. You
may need to use next release of Camel and/or latest release if the bug
was fixed in that release.

An alternative is to add functionality to the mail component to deal
with parsing errors before routing, such as mark it as seen or move it
