Pipe is a Sieve extension action.


  pipe [:envelope] [:header] [:body] <program: string>

The pipe action executes a shell command specified by its argument and pipes the entire message, including its envelope, to its standard input.

Piping only certain parts of the message can be requested by supplying corresponding tagged arguments. For example

  pipe :envelope :body "prog"

will send to prog only envelope and body of each message.
