XML Mail

Are there any parsers that will accept 'mail' and 
generate corresponding XML?

I would imagine putting this in /etc/aliases :

xml-files:   "!/opt/xmlmail/bin/rewrite ... "

The rewrite program would:

0) Transform reserved characters > < & into
   &gt; &lt; &amp; and handle other trivial 
   conversions such as this.

1) Transform the 'headers' into XML structure.
      sender="clark.evans at manhattanproject.com"
      to.1="xml-dev at ic.ac.uk"

2) Leave valid XML/HTML alone if possible.

3) Add a <mail> </mail> and <p> </p> for non-xml
   non-html mail.


Anything like this monster?

Thanks tons!
