Extract attachments from .EML files for Public Folder migration

I have a somewhat large Public Folder structure in Exchange 2003.  We are migrated to Office 365 and I am trying to forklift Public Folders out of Exchange and into SharePoint.  What I really want, for now, is to take the Public Folders folder structure and simply upload to SharePoint.

I have enabled the M drive on Exchange and was able to copy the folders structure to a local drive.  I now need to extract the attachments from each .EML file.  I would to have the attachment extracted to the same folder that the .EML file is in.

I've looked at some EML detach utilities, and the ones I've tried seemed to just extra the files into one big folder or group by file type.  I just want them dumped right into the same folder structure.  I don't mind paying for a utility if it'll work for what I need.  Any recommendations or scripts that can accomplish this for me?

Thanks...

We make a product that can extract the entire contents from an offline EDB to PST or just the attachments from an offline EDB  or PST but not .eml :-(

That said since you appears to already have them in EML format check out

I did already try emlDetach but it was not exactly what I wanted.  It can do EML files in batch, but it would not export them into the same folder structure that it read them in from.  So when I select the root folder (with many subfolders), it will recursively detach files from EML files, but then it only puts them into one folder.  I ended up having to brute force it by individually selecting each of 130 subfolders so that I could define the export folder for each one.  I did purchase the software for under $20 and it did save me some time but still more effort than I had hoped.

Accepting my comment partially as I had already tried emlDetach but it didn't do exactly what I wanted.  I ended up using emlDetach along with some brute force to get the solution.
