Does it exist any web service that "filters" any email message allowing to change the subject or the content on a regexp basis and then forward it to my webmail address?

For example: I want to append automatically the string "IMPORTANT! " to the subject of every message I receive with the subject containing "expiry", or I want to change any occurrence of "h2>" in the body to "h1>".

Can you add what kind of service you use? what email program (mua)? What OS? –  Keith Jan 9 '11 at 17:59
Aren't web services independent from OS and email client which run on client pc? –  Toc Jan 10 '11 at 10:19

You don't say how you read your email (offline, webmail) and what mail provider or software you are using, but here some pointers:

  • you can use procmail if your mail servers provide it or you can do this on your client side
  • alternatively this can be done in many email readers

If this doesn't apply find a mail provider that has procmail support and move all your mail through it.
