Don't slurp it all at once?  I mean read the header, line by line (until 
the first blank line) and then look for something like, I dunno 
attachments or size in the header and then slurp the rest.  vaguely:

my $okay = 0;
while (<>) {
   # blank line, end of header
   last if /^\s*$/;
  # process header lines

if ( $okay ) {
   $/ = ""
    $body = <>;
} else {
  # bad msg?

Documentation is the castor oil of programming.  Managers know it must be 
good because the programmers hate it so much.
