stripmail is a small, lightweight and highly flexible application that is designed to read in an e-mail message, strip out the parts you don't want, and only leave in the parts that you do want.
stripmail has been successfully compiled(*) and installed on systems running FreeBSD 4.7, FreeBSD 5.3 and GNU/Linux. It provides functions similar to those of MIMEdefang, except that it isn't (yet) designed as a sendmail milter, but does so without the overhead of a full Perl interpreter. The application is written in C and is therefore faster than a Perl script and it leaves a far smaller memory footprint.
For a full description of stripmail's functions, the easiest is for you to read its man page.
Tarball: stripmail.tar.bz2 MD5: stripmail.tar.bz2.md5 GnuPG signature: stripmail.tar.bz2.asc
Read the INSTALL file included in the tarball. Really... Do it...
(*) - The FreeBSD 4.7 machine on which I did my tests complained when it came to generating the HTML version of the man page. The page was, however, successfully generated.
