So it would appear likely your e-mail application is not following the convention. Maybe a blank line precedes the traditional opening
PS line. Or maybe that line is not there at all.
You could perhaps print the e-mail to a file and examine in detail
how it begins. With this information it should be possible to adapt the print filter script to detect the alternative PS introduction.
Or even write a prefilter script that recognises the alternate PS start and converts it to a more conventional start. It might
for example only need to drop a leading new line character.
