Anyone has a simple and effective perl mail filter?

I know about Mail::Audit and Mail::SpamAssassin, but because of
the way our mail system is setup, I can't really use them.

This is what I do today:
I move the /var/mail/userid file to my home directory where I can
run a perl script that based on some parameters sort out the mail,
either saving on individual folders, deleting or storing as 'pending' 
each message.

I would like to have a way of better define rules for guiding
this script on what to do, based on words from the Subject,
From, To and even from the mail text.

Thanks in advance,
