I'm not sure exactly how much this helps you, but Mail::Audit takes its input on STDIN, and the two usual ways for remote clients to talk to mail servers, IMAP and POP3, are represented in CPAN. It shouldn't be difficult to write a Perl script to grab your mail and run it through whatever you please... the difficulty, to my mind, would be getting your mailreader to play nicely with Mail::Audit, which AFAIK only writes to various Unixy formats of mailbox.

Update: You should be able to download a copy of each message via IMAP, filter it through Mail::Audit and/or friends, and based on the results keep it, move it around, or delete it, also via IMAP (or more specifically, via Mail::IMAPClient).

    [ambrus]: what push_write thing? I don't think you need that. that's implemented generically by AnyEvent::Handle
    [Corion]: ambrus: Yeah, that's what I think as well. But you give me an idea, maybe I should start with implementing the timer, as that should be far simpler and with fewer edge-cases/nasty interaction than the file watcher
    [ambrus]: You only provide the watcher part that tells when the handle is readable or writable, not the actual writing and reading.
    [Corion]: ambrus: Hmmm. It makes sense that AnyEvent would implement the push_write itself, but I think I don't have a good idea of where the boundary between AnyEvent and the underlying event system lies... Implementing the timer should give me a better idea
    [ambrus]: Corion: push_write is in the higher level abstraction of AnyEvent::Handle, not in the watcher
    [Corion]: ambrus: Hmm - rereading Prima::File, that merrily coincides with what Prima does - it tells you "you can read", and you're supposed to read from the fh yourself. I thought it called you with the data already read, which would've been harder to integrate
    [ambrus]: you just need an io watcher, created by &AnyEvent::Impl:: Whatever::io(...)
    [Corion]: So after talking it through with you even while I'm still not entirely clear on where AE ends and my implementation begins, I think I understand that I only need to implement some smaller parts for each functionality I want to support.
    [Corion]: Yeah... and you might even be able to mix and match additional functionality if you have additional async suppliers, like from a separate thread
    [ambrus]: You hvae to be careful with the timer, because apparently Prima::Timer insists on being periodic, wheras AnyEvent::Impl:: Whatever::timer should give a one-shot timer watcher
