Saving Email with Embedded Images to File or Database

Can an email with embedded images be stored ?
If so, what format. Are the embedded images stored separately or is the email stored as a whole (1 file or 1 binary string) ? Is storage in a database possible directly from memory or should we first save to disk ?

The Chilkat.Email.GetMime() method returns the MIME source of an email. The MIME includes all embedded images, attachments, etc. It may be stored in a database, but the database field should be text and capable of handling strings of any size (certainly greater than the limits of a varchar field).
