This is not a good question - we cannot work out from that little what you are trying to do.
Remember that we can't see your screen, access your HDD, or read your mind - we only get exactly what you type to work with - we get no other context for your project.

Imagine this: you go for a drive in the country, but you have a problem with the car. You call the garage, say "it broke" and turn off your phone. How long will you be waiting before the garage arrives with the right bits and tools to fix the car given they don't know what make or model it is, who you are, what happened when it all went wrong, or even where you are?

That's what you've done here. So stop typing as little as possible and try explaining things to people who have no way to access your project!

Think about what you want to know, and what we might need to help you - "start parsing an email" tells us nothing about where you are with the project: we don't even know where you are getting the email and what format it might be in, let alone what it contains that you might be parsing for!

That depends entirely on what you mean by "parsing an email". There is no standard definition for that phrase, so you're going to have to go into detail on what you mean by that and what the goals of your operation are.

Read my article, which explains in detail how emails are encoded, the different parts they have, how to deal with HTML and pure text, attachments, pics and much more

Resurrecting a question from three months ago to promote your article, even one posted here on CodeProject, is considered spam.

Especially since your article concerns .NET, whereas the question was about Python.

I suggest you remove this answer before you start attracting down-votes on your article, or "spammer" votes on your account.
