You can't do that directly in Dovecot. What you can do is to use a
utility called tnef [1] (available in major GNU/Linux distributions) on
the client to extract the data on the client. Otherwise you could use
ytnef [2] with procmail or Dovecot sieve_pipe [3] on the server (see [4]).

I tried tnef on rare occasions and it worked.
