How to unzip and parse an email attachment in Phantom

Path Finder

Phantom is monitoring an email box for me, and every email will have exactly one attachment: a zipped .msg file. I need to unzip that .msg file and parse the body of it. I'm a little stuck.

All I can get so far is the vault id of the attached .zip file. I imagine I need to get the filepath and filename of the file from the vault and unzip it in a custom Python block - I can handle the unzipping part if I can just open the file in my custon block, but the filepath of the artifact is null, so although the zipped email attachment shows up as a vault artifact, I'm not sure how to open it.

What do I need to do in order to open this .zip file / email attachment in a custom Python block?
Thanks!

The 'Phantom' app has a 'deflate Item' that does the work for you. You just have to pass the vault and container ids, and whether or not you want it to decompress recursively.
