I'm pretty sure Sarah has one that uses SMTP too.

What makes reading attachments so hard?  Aren't they separated by an ID 
number and you're told what the type of the attachment is and possibly 
the length?  It seems like LiveCode's text search routines would make it 
pretty easy to "delimit" the various attachments from each other.  The 
"hard" part would be deciding what to do with them once you had them.
