another command line program that may be of interest is mpack and munpack.
I haven't built email filters like you're describing- but mpack is great
for assembling a bunch of text and attachment files into a message file
that can be passed into a command line mail program. Could be used if
you're trying to automate messages w/ logs attached or something.
On the other end - munpack is great for taking a message and splitting
the attachments out of it.
