Storing mail data (RFC 822)

We are developing an application similar to:

We are confused on how to store mail data:

-> Do we just dump the RFC 822 data directly as a single file in Alfresco? Disadvantages we faced:
    * Alfresco search was not able to search inside mail body and attachments.
    * In the UI, how do we let the user download just one attachment from the list of attachments?
-> Split each mail part and store as a separate file. This involves:
    * Maintaining a 0-byte control file which stores in its aspect document id of all parts.
    * Every part will maintain its parent id in a custom aspect.

Any suggestion and information is much appreciated.
