I have for some time used Yahoo Pipes to tweak some RSS feeds the way I want them. Now I want something similar for my email. Specifically, I subscribe to a few email list that once a day sends me an email that contains all posts to the list from that day. That email is poorly designed. It begins with a lot of information on how to exit the list so I (and everyone else) have to scroll down two pages to see the index of all included emails. I want to remove that initial text. Since it's always the same it would be easy to do in RegExp or even with some simpler find/replace tool.

So I need an extension for Thunderbird och Outlook Express that lets me automatically modify text for all incoming messages that fit some filter (sender email adress in my case). Has anyone seen such a thing?

I've quickly searched https://addons.mozil...g/en-US/thunderbird/ but didn't find a match. The closest thing I got was a Thunderbird extension called NestedQuote Remover, http://email.about.c.../nestedquote_rem.htm : "NestedQuote Remover swiftly (automatically even if you desire so) eliminates stale quoted text from replies to replies and leaves only the most recently quoted email in place."
