If the contents of the e-mails are gathered also, the best place to
display this information is probably via the Export Object feature (File
- Export - Object menu).  The only object export implemented so far is
HTTP.  See gtk/export_object.c, gtk/export_object_http.c and a small
piece in epan/dissectors/packet-http.c for how this is implemented.
Hint: It uses the tap mechanism to pass the information from the
dissector to the export object dialog.
