My reply to Tim's original question was blocked by the list for some
reason, but I'll try again:

This is trivial. You can use a .forward file, procmail, an alias in 
/etc/aliases, etc. to direct (pipe) a mail message straight to STDIN
of any program you want.

(If you're on a *nix box `man vacation` for an example using .forward.)
