I might consider using MIME::Entity to do the actual parsing of the message and headers. A few other notes:

  • Send a reply to the Reply-To header if it's provided
  • Use "X-Loop"-type checks to ensure that you do not enter a mail loop with yourself or another mail robot (e.g. a poorly configured "vacation" script)
  • If you're performing any privileged actions, be aware that sender addresses can be pretty easily forged
