I think it is time to announce Courriel::MMS - it is an extension for the new email handling library by Dave Rolsky for processing MMS messages forwarded as emails by the mobile operators. This is still just a github link, no CPAN package yet, but it works in our production servers since Wednesday - so I bet on this code :)

It is a bit heuristic - for example many operators send a subject like 'You have received an mms' - which is useless for us, so the library tries to find something else that would act as the subject we need. For dealing with the various mobile operators, that each send a slightly different format of these emails, I used the Factory design pattern together with Module::Pluggable - this is a novel design for me so I wait for comments.
