Looking for Automatic mail processing tool

Hi mentors,

I looks for automatic mail processing tool.
There are a lot for Spam and Virus check. But I did not find one for automatic email processing such like auto e-mail reply or filing.
I use Postfix and look for some customizable and easy to use tool for inspecting a mail header and body and handling it for automatic response or filing attached file.

For example, when sending an email attached of some photo via mobile phone. At mail server side, it check the email address and its content then it saves photo in a folder.

If you know, please let me know.

Thanks and Regards,

install webmin, spamassassin. in webmin, go to
server-> spamassassin mail filter-> header and body test put what ever score you like for the a keyword. Like put 100 for 'mortgage'.
Under spamassassin, you can set where the spam mail will be store so next time you can go to retrieve if spamassassin overkill some email.

You can use procmail to do your filtering. It is the most powerful mail filtering program in the world - based on perl.
