Look in the body and start counting. It doesn't matter how many mails there 
are in. There may be text and html parts, pictures, mailing list 
signatures. As Scott says you have to count the number of MIME 
compartments. Grep for lines starting with "--" and pipe that to wc -l. You 
might get some FPs, but it should be close to the number given by MS.
