Certain scripting languages, Python for one, have email related modules.  
You can use these to write scripts that will extract various parts of 
an email.  Once you write your script, I think you can get procmail to 
call the script so that the processing can be done when emails are 
initially received.  (I have no personal experience doing such a task.)

Best of luck,
