    Was it really confusing? The aliases file can copy an email to a file
    and also pipe to a script. The file perms of the email prevent the the
    script from parsing the file.

    Aliases
    autoresponder:
    /tmp/FDC_RETREAT,|/opt/systems/mail/postfix/configs/atlanta_corp/autoresponder/autoresponder.sh

    Log:
    The logs show the email is sent to autoresponder which works as expected.

    ls -l /tmp |grep FDC
    -rw------- 1 nobody nobody 4249 Mar 26 10:09 FDC_RETREAT

    I assume the script runs as postfix since postfix runs as user:postfix.
