Question... why jump through all those hoops in the first place... if you are 
simply looking for a text pattern in the email or attachment then write a 
subroutine that takes an $entity as an argument and can look for it and only 
bcc the messages you are looking for to the other email account (or setup 
some other means of notification). 

Call it from filter (for the message scan part) and filter_multipart (for the 
attachments scanning). The default filter has a sub called bad_filenames or 
some such.. this would be a good example as to how to structure something 
like this.
