Extract attachments and parse eml files through ASP

I need to write an ASP that will extract the attachments from an eml file and store them in a temp directory, display a link to that file, parse the email data from that same eml and display it.  I will need to show plain text as well as HTML emails.  I have no idea what to start with here.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Let's hope you got some time for this.

There is no plug&play for this as far as I know.
Start by reading some RFC's on how e-mail messages are build up, or try using a GPL'd extractor like http://sourceforge.net/projects/tnef/ 

Also look up some BASE64 and UUDECODE routines.

Bonne chance

I have a little time, but not enough to reinvent the wheel.  I was hoping that there was some way to incorporate some sample code, a function, or a command line app to parse the data and extract the attachments.
