can probably be used for this job.  The man page is a must, and caution is
advised (formail will do what it's told, as will the commands it is told to
send the output to--it can happen that it's told the wrong thing for an
input mbox file with lots of messages).

The formail program typically rides in with the procmail package in
package-based distributions.
