Okay, this is probably off topic, and I'll gladly take it offlist if
someone can contact me directly with an answer...I was hoping that with
the BSD Unix gurus here, someone may have experience in the area of

I'm looking for a PERL script that can act kind of like a proxy
(filter?) for an IMAP connection, and when certain lines of text come
through, it will erase them while leaving everything else intact.

browsing, reading, flagging, etc. would be passed just fine but when
headers for read receipt/tracking requests come into the proxy, it
would just filter them out (or alter them in a way that they would be
Would such a thing even be possible to easily implement, if it doesn't
already exist? It should be pretty transparent, I would think...
Thanks for any guidance you could offer in this area...
