If you are worried that the alias isn't being processed at all or that 
Stripmime isn't being run, you can always put a '|tee /tmp/worrynot' into 
that pipe.

If you get verification that Stripmime is running, but it's just acting 
like 'cat', then consider installing 'demime' which is much more flexibile 
and capable.  I tried both and definitely settled on demime.
