Use the following four-line filter file:

# ---- CUT HERE ----
sub filter_end {
# ---- CUT HERE ----

And then make an alias "archive-bot" that just appends to a file.  For
example, you might put this in /etc/mail/aliases:

	 archive-bot: /var/spool/mail-archive.mbox

(Don't forget to run "newaliases")

There.  That wasn't so painful, was it?

This is becoming a common theme on the MIMEDefang list. :-(

MIMEDefang is written for people WHO KNOW PERL!  That's the
whole point of the program.
