Unhappy Pipe email using aliases file or script


have some problems in doing my project, my project title is ' in investigate into implementation of certification authority with small network ' ( with using Postfix, openSSL ) and i have builded up two different networks using debian and after that i need to make a mail server, so i configured Postfix and made a mail server, i can send and receive emails on both networks.
now i need a shell script on received emails using Postfix, like mail is coming from outside then will go to pipe and there should a script in bash, that will run and check the email and deliver to others, or throw it away some thing like that... here are some links where i was looking

Haven't read those posts closely but they appear to be single shot Perl or PHP filters. Sure it'll work but it doesn't provide you with a framework that's easily extendible. Postfix appears to have its own internal spam handling if that's what you're getting at (else there's spamassassin and another app whose name I always forget). If you OTOH need routing based on filters and the output of external scripts have a look at say procmail?
