Certain scripting languages, Python for one, have email related modules.
You can use these to write scripts that will extract various parts of
an email. Once you write your script, I think you can get procmail to
call the script so that the processing can be done when emails are
initially received. (I have no personal experience doing such a task.)
Best of luck,
