There is a package `etach.el' which you can add to Emacs which
provides the ability to handle MIME attachments in mail and RMAIL

Once you load the file etach.el(c), the function `detach' (usually
called by typing D) in RMAIL mode saves all attachments in the current
message to the directory ~/detached .  In Mail mode, the function
`attach' will attach a file in appropriate format to the outgoing
message. (It also includes a nice utility for complaining about spam.)

The package was written by John Rulnick and I have found it very
useful indeed. The current version is, I think, 1.2.0. You can get
more information, and download the required files at:
