Thanks for that, however it won't work.

Perhaps I didn't make myself clear in what I meant by stripping out the 
HTML form emails. I didn't just mean the HTML itself, I meant everything 
else associated with it as well.

For example, here is an HTML email minus it's headers:
Basically I just want the LX0008 & LX0010 part, and not all the 
content-type, etc that's added by some email browsers.

MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: multipart/alternative; 
X-Mailer: 9.0 for Windows sub 630

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit


Content-Type: text/html; charset="US-ASCII"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: quoted-printable

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<META http-equiv=3DContent-Type content=3D"text/html; charset=3DUS-ASCII">
<META content=3D"MSHTML 6.00.2737.800" name=3DGENERATOR></HEAD>
<BODY id=3Drole_body style=3D"FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #000000; 
bottomMargin=3D7 leftMargin=3D7 topMargin=3D7 rightMargin=3D7><FONT 
face=3DArial color=3D#000000 size=3D2>
