Heh.  You're looking at this section, no doubt:

  cat > $myfile
  server=`egrep -i < $myfile "In:  [HE][HE]LO"|sed 's/^.*LO *//' `
  if [ "$server" = "" ]; then
    server=`egrep -i < $myfile "^Subject.*errors from "|sed 's/^Subject.*errors from 
//; s:\[.*::g' `

Confusing, isn't it?  The thing is, this program is a filter.  The
first line copies stdin to $myfile for future (multiple) readings.  If
it weren't a filter, the cat command would still read from stdin, so
if it were a terminal, it would just appear to hang.
