MIME attachments in mbox files

I have a need (well, I have lots of needs, but I'll try to stay 
focused here) to be able to take a Windows zip file that is stored as 
a MIME attachment to an e-mail message in an Mbox-format spool file, 
and unzip the attachment. I actually need to script the process. In 
case it helps, I can dedicate a mailbox to the task. If necessary, I 
can write my own parser to strip out the attachment, in which case 
I'd need only a widget that can take in a MIME (base64) encoded zip 
file, convert it to binary, and unzip it.

Anyone know of any FreeBSD utility(ies) that do(es) this?
