Receiving mime messages with attachments

At this moment i'm using filter to filter out some messages from my mailbox and process the data in it. However, at this moment people, sending me this data, do still have to put their data in the text itself, because when they send it as attachments, i receive a mime-message.
How can i automatically extract the data from such a mime message ? We do have metamail and mimencode on our box.

"cat mail.text | metamail" doesn't work if i'm using filter. Metamail becomes then interactive. I've found i can specify an option to make it extract the files automatically.
I now specify "cat mail.txt | metamail -w -x -B". In advance i set the variable METAMAIL_TMPDIR to a temporary directory to write the extracted files to.
This seems to work !
