Processing iContacts HMTL Email into WordPress

  • Download the message. This yields a .eml file.
  • Run munpack on the .eml file. This will break the file into several files named part1 part2, etc, one of which will be HTML with some non-ascii characters. Let's say part2 for example.

This might work with other HTML emails. I've only tried iContacts.

munpack -t file.eml
awk '{ gsub(/\377/,""); print; }' part2 > tmp.html
