NAME¶email-print-mime-structure - display a tree-like view of the MIME structure of an e-mail
DESCRIPTION¶email-print-mime-structure reads a MIME message from stdin and produces a treelike representation to stdout.
If the user wants the parts numbered, they can feed the output through something like "cat -n".
- KEYFILE should name an OpenPGP transferable secret key that is not
password-protected. If a PGP/MIME-encrypted message is found on standard
input, this key will be tried for decryption. May be used multiple times
if you want to try decrypting with more than one secret key.
OpenPGP secret keys listed in --pgpkey= are used ephemerally, and do not interact with any local GnuPG keyring.
- KEYFILE should name a PEM- or DER-encoded X.509 private key that is
not password-protected. If an S/MIME-encrypted message that uses CMS is
found on standard input, this key will be tried for decryption. May be
used multiple times if you want to try decrypting with more than one such
X.509 private keys listed in --cmskey= are used ephemerally, and do not interact with any local GnuPG keyring.
- If this flag is present, and email-print-mime-structure encounters
a PGP/MIME- or S/MIME-encrypted part, it will try to decrypt the part
using the secret keys found in the local installation of GnuPG.
If --use-gpg-agent is supplied along with either --pgpkey=KEYFILE or --cmskey=KEYFILE arguments, the KEYFILE arguments will be tried before falling back to GnuPG.
If email-print-mime-structure has been asked to decrypt parts with either --pgpkey=KEYFILE or with --use-gpg-agent, and it is unable to decrypt an encrypted part, it will emit a warning to stderr.
- Don't try to decrypt PGP/MIME- or S/MIME-encrypted parts using secret keys found in the local installation of GnuPG. This is the default.
- --help, -h
- Show usage instructions.

LIMITATIONS¶email-print-mime-structure's output is not stable, and is not intended to be interpreted by machines, so please do not depend on it in scripts!
email-print-mime-structure displays some data from within the e-mail, but does not sanitize it before display. Some particularly cleverly-malformed MIME parameters might be able to induce apparent formatting changes or emit arbitrary characters to stdout.
email-print-mime-structure expects to be run in a UTF-8-friendly environment.
