I wrote a Perl script a while back which makes numerous modifications to
incoming email, which can be called directly from an Exim
transport_filter, procmail, or anything else which pipes an email to a
script and gets a replacement email from that scripts output.
Depending on your level of Perl foo, you might be able to glean some
useful tips from it as it's pretty well commented:
It basically gpg encrypts email. I use it for encrypting all of my
incoming email that isn't already encrypted. If you want to use inline
encryption rather than PGP/MIME it does several lossy operations to try
and flatten the email down to a single text part first. If it's
multipart text/html and text/plain, it strips the HTML part (assuming
the text part has at least some content). If it has any image
attachments that are referred to from that HTML, it strips those too.
