Perl, Email, and Scanning

WORKING ENVIROMENT:
=====================
Debian Linux (Woody)
PostFix MTA
Perl 5.8
SpamAssassin 3.0.1

Basically, I need to be able to intercept incoming mail and analyze it
before it is delivered to the users inbox. After it's analyzed, I want to
send it to the users mailbox (or run it through SpamAssissin) as normal.
Can anyone tell me how I might go about doing this in Perl?

Thanks in Advance,
Anthony

If you install Procmail, it's pretty straightforward to add any filter,
e.g. one written in Perl.

This group is defunct, and replaced with comp.lang.perl.misc.
