Author/Date e-mail attachment within and e-mail attachment, etc...

I often receive e-mails that contain a forwarded e-mail, which in i.Scribe is presented as an attachment (message.eml or message.txt). And often the attached e-mail further contain a forwarded e-mail, thus resulting to an attachment within an attachment within an attachment etc.... Is there an easy way to open the last attached e-mail other than double-clicking on the attachments?

Not at this stage, and I'm unlikely to change it. I just can't see a better user interface to this than there already is. Although I'm open to ideas on how to do it better.

If the only attachment is .eml and there are no body, you know it is a message attached, and it can be oppened, but I dont know if it's a good idea (maybe as an option, hehe). I dont mind to click over and over (usually is an uninteresting message)

Your implementation and user interface is fine, just maybe an option in the attachment pop-up menu that says "Open exhaustively"??? Just a suggestion. Carlos is right, these messages are usually uninteresting anyway :)
