        Good, I program in Perl too :-)
        I just thought that mailscanner is in C.

        What p3scan does is to get the message from pop server and put it in a directory. So, I just need some program that:

        1) get a message file
        2) search such attach names
        3) possibly remove them
        4) create another file with such possible modifications

        In realy, I already started write such program in C, but stopped when saw that I would have to decode mime parts whose file encoded are another mails (Content-Type: message/rfc822). The work was growing up too much :-)
        So, if I find some function set (in Perl or C) that execute the 4 steps above, I`ll be done.

        Thank you
