Parse Ubuntu system mail and send to S3 -- 2

- read emails in /var/mail/$user (only one user)

- save one email per file

I can provide samples for both but it's a standard format.

Note that we have lot's of big emails with attachments (i.e. 10MB each and 2-3GB in total) and limited CPU so this needs to be quick.

Must be able to run as cron every few minutes (and finish!).

I saw this to parse emails:


To save to S3 PHP or Python is fine (we have a working sample implementation) or even s3cmd is fine.

Skills: Linux, Ubuntu, C++ Programming
