Reading OSX mail attachments

I have a situation where customer orders come to me via email with a
photo attachment. It occurred to me that I could use rev to create a
db front end that could be pointed at the appropriate mailbox folder
and then have it extract each message. Then, each message becomes a
record in my db.
Extracting the data is a piece o cake. Then I come to the
attachment. Apple apparently uses a compression technique to store
the image (jpg, bmp, whatever) within each individual message. Has
anybody fiddled with reading and displaying these attachments? Any
thoughts? Ideas? Laughs? ;=)
Thanks in advance!
