I regularly use rmail and I receive mail with various codings, most
often latin-* and utf-8, but occasionally others.  I use a customised
rmime.el to save attachments to files.

Could I get the above functionalities using rmail-mbox?  Using rmime.el
is not a priority if there are alternative tools allowing to save
attachments from rmail.
