Pipes the message body through program. program should be a filter program, that reads the text from the standard input and prints the transformed text on the standard output. The output from the program replaces the body of the message. args are any additional arguments the program may require.
The amount of data fed to the external program depends on the
message. For plain messages, the entire body is passed. For
multi-part messages, only the first part is passed by default.
This is based on the assumption that in most multi-part messages
the first part contains textual data, while the rest contains
various (mostly non-textual) attachments. There is a special
read-entire-body that controls this
behavior (see section Basic Settings). Setting
CONTROL section of your configuration file instructs
Anubis to pass the entire contents of multi-part messages to
your external processor.
There is a substantial difference between operating in
read-entire-body no (the default) and
yes modes. When operating in
read-entire-body no, the first
part of the message is decoded and then passed to the external
program. In contrast, when
read-entire-body is set to
yes, the message is not decoded. Thus, your external processor
must be able to cope with MIME messages.
