I think it would probably be easiest to do it from outside Claws Mail.
Claws Mail's default storage format MH is quite easy to parse for
I attached a script that I use as a filter to store pictures of some
incomming mails automatically to a folder - but it should also be able
to do what you want, e.g.
store all attachments of a mail folder tree
extract_attachments_from_mime_message.py --all-content-types --recursive /path/to/mail/folder /path/to/target/folder
You can also select which attachments to store based on MIME type,
e.g. only image/* and application/pdf:
extract_attachments_from_mime_message.py --content-type image --content-type application/pdf --recursive /path/to/mail/folder /path/to/target/folder
Maybe it helps. Beware that these are not very well tested (because I
use the script differently) - no guarantees.
You can also check out --help.
