I am working on an email viewer and am seeking some good test emails. I
have found a couple of goog email archives at:
And was wondering if there were any others people might recommend or know
of which is also publically available.
There is a lot of email here and the vast majority of it looks the same,
so obviously it would not be necessary to test a viewer with each email.
So, I was thinking about how I might be able to filter that email and pick
out the unique/interesting/challenging ones.
The best answer I have come up with so far is to take find unique mime
structures, taking into account the mime type (multipart/alternative,
text/plain, etc), whether the mime part is an attachment, it's content
disposition, charset, and transfer encoding.
Does anyone have a better alternative?
Any thoughts people might have would be of interest, especially if someone
was aware of a custom NSView which was also capable of simply viewing
