Thanks, Patrick and Uday, for your help. While "cat filename | munpack"
works in the terminal, the munpack-command in the .vm-file does not.
However, the solution is much easier. The suggested c-programs do indeed
come with vm and the following lines in my .vm-file do all I want: (setq
vm-mime-base64-decoder-program "base64-decode") (setq
vm-mime-base64-encoder-program "base64-encode")

Best, Salome
