    Would you mind have a look on this PR ?
    
    Function here is to extract TNEF attachments. TNEF is the technical name for the widely
loved winmail.dat files.
    
    Use case is:
    
    SMPT/POP -> ExtractAttachments > Route based on mime.type -> ExtractTNEF ->
whatever

> during the review of NIFI-1899 Dan Marshall highlighted some use cases for email processing
that have not been addressed as part of the initial development cycle.
> One of these use cases was the decoding of Microsoft Transport Neutral Encoding Files
(TNEF). 
> This type of attachments is popularly know as winmail.dat and uses a non RFC compliant
structure to transfer attachments across different Microsoft Outlook clients.
> Given the prevalence of outlook and the issues with winmail.dat files, it would be nice
to be able to decode TNEF as we currently do with MIME attachments.
