This document describes a language for filtering e-mail messages at
time of final delivery.  It is designed to be implementable on either
a mail client or mail server.  It is meant to be extensible, simple,
and independent of access protocol, mail architecture, and operating

not be allowed to execute arbitrary programs, such as on black box
IMAP servers, as it has no variables, loops, or ability to shell out
to external programs.

        feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
        command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
        a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
        exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
        "multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
        up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
        how to manipulate these messages.

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
