This is done with option --jsonoutput:
This JSON output can then be consumed by different tools I develop. One of them is file-magic.py, a tool to identify files using the libmagic library.
Here file-magic.py identifies all parts of the MIME file:
And it becomes clear that the JPEG parts is not actually an image, but an MSO/ActiveMime file that can contain VBA code.
