I could write you something in REALbasic in about 5 minutes, but there
will be no intelligence to it, it will just read the input file, and move
it to an output file, segmenting it every x mb... this can cause problems
because, unless the person was on vacation for the last YEAR... chances
are REALLY good, that 800mb mail box is full of file attachments...
segmenting those mid attachment stream will make it really hard to
reassemble the files.
