Someone has sent me an email with a lot of pictures attached and I would
like to use ^P to save them all to a directory. Alpine does not let me
do this, although it does allow it for a different message.
The only difference I can see is that for the one that works the various
parts of the message are numbered 1 2 3 etc and for the one that fails
1.1 1.2 1.3 etc.
So I guess Alpine has decided that there are "parts" and not
"attachments" and will not enable the ^p facility,
1) why? What is there in the message that forces this choice
2) any way round it? I really dont want to save 20 files one at a time
if I can avoid it. (now that you have invented this nice facility)
